March Events

Reserve Hose Inaugural Cornhole Tournament

It’s not all emergency business with our crews. This month our members, along with the help of their significant others, battled it out in our very first cornhole tournament. As always, there were lots of laughs and some competitive jeering as we duked it out to determine our top bag tossers. The afternoon wrapped up with some awards and a hearty meal shared together.

March Drill - Survival Training

For this month’s drill, Reserve Hose welcomed the Erie County Fire Instructors and their survival trailer. Our members practiced on several different scenarios for window bailouts of a residential structure. The evolutions included the utilization of separate tools and strategies to formulate escapes with and without a partner. A beautiful evening outside and really great training!

Acquired Structure Training

East Seneca Fire Company invited all of their mutual aid partners to train on a residence that is scheduled for demolition. This type of hands-on, “real life” scenarios, are ideal for our members to practice the skills required for exterior and interior operations. Reserve Hose focused their training on rooftop ventilation. Our crew utilized a ground ladder to access the roof. Then, working off a roof ladder, the team operated a chain saw and pike pole to make the ventilation hole. Thank you to our fellow volunteers at ESFC for some terrific training.

NYS Stipend Program

NYS Stipend Program

New York State has launched the first training stipend program for volunteer firefighters to strengthen and stabilize the volunteer fire service. A total of $10 million will help offset the costs of training courses which volunteer firefighters are required to complete.

Volunteer fire departments serve approximately nine million New Yorkers, nearly half of the State’s population. In recent years, however, more than three-quarters of these departments have reported a decrease in the number of individuals willing to volunteer and serve. This is further compounded by the increased operational responsibilities beyond fire protection to include vehicle accidents, medical emergencies, hazardous material spills, and weather-related rescue operations.
