Posted Leave a commentPosted in News

Coeymans Hollow Volunteer Fire Company in conjunction with The Town of Coeymans Police Department, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department, Ravena Rescue Squad, Ravena Fire Department, Coeymans Fire Company, Babcock Funeral Home and Burns Towing held a Mock Crash at the Ravena Coeymans Selkirk High School Complex on Friday, May 2, 2014 from 12p-2p.

With Prom Weekend approaching we would like parents to discuss the dangers of drinking and driving with their kids. This will not only help prevent them from drinking and driving but maybe to help a friend not drink and drive.

All participating agencies wish all students a fun, memorable and safe prom weekend.

William Greenwood became a New Hampshire volunteer firefighter because he witnessed a car accident involving his sister. He saw volunteer firefighters struggle to gather enough members to respond to the emergency, and decided he wanted to be a solution to this problem. You can benefit from this sense of community and shared purpose by joining one of Albany County’s volunteer fire companies.
