Inside the Firehouse

Meet Your Fire Company

Sunday, February 22
3:00 PM

At the A.B. Shaw Firehouse – 67 Route 23, Claverack NY 12513



FREE FOR ALL AGES (Sponsored by the Claverack Library)

Do you wonder if you have what it takes to be a volunteer firefighter? To be the one running in when everyone else is running out?

All are invited to a “show and tell” of the new firehouse and the fire fighting equipment – yes, those big red trucks!

The presentation will incorporate information about the Fire District and how the Fire Company operates within the Fire District, including AB Shaw Firehouse v2funding aspects. Chief Mike Cozzolino will outline training requirements and explain that not all volunteer firefighters are required to go inside a burning building.
