01.13.2012 - WFFC Vehicle Extrication TrainingWFFC hosted a vehicle extrication training this past week, under the command of NYS instructor Jay Mazurkiewicz. Vehicle extrication is the process of removing the vehicle from around a person that has been involved in a motor vehicle accident, when conventional means of exit are impossible or unadvisable. A delicate approach is needed to minimize injury to the victim during the extrication. This operation is typically accomplished by utilizing chocks and bracing for stabilization and hydraulic tools, including the Jaws of Life. I'm proud to say that our company showed expertise and efficiency during the practical scenarios and would like to say thank you to all who donated vehicles to the cause. If you would like to donate a vehicle to West Falls Fire Company (or youíre local co.) please make the call today. The more we can practice, the more efficient the process becomes, plus itís a tax deductible donation. If you would like to check out a few photos from the training, just head over to the WFFC Facebook. Be Safe!

07.2011 - House Warming Party 2011! Tannery Burn ...
On Saturday, June 18th, the West Falls Fire Company conducted a live burn of a house on Tannery road in West Falls NY. Lots of time and effort went into appropriating the property, and the event went off without a hitch. Several companies were on location. We all had a great learn and a great time. Thanks to all that made it possible and to the Firefighters/EMT's that came out to drill with us. Looking forward to the next event. Please check out photos of the burn, on our Facebook page (while you're there, give it a "like" and join us for up to date events, info and random goodness.
2011 - Purchased with your generous donations
WFFC has used proceeds from past fund drives to purchase an ambulance that will be donated to the Aurora Colden Fire District #6. The demand for ambulance services in our community is increasing. By purchasing the ambulance and staffing it with our 100% volunteer EMS squad we are doing our best to provide a vital service to the members of our community, while trying to minimize the tax burden on homeowners.
