On Saturday October 19 we will be standing by for fire protection at a fireworks club shoot which will be held at the Mount Hope Town Park.
For Fire Prevention week we visited the Busy Bees Preschool and the Field of Dreams Preschool (Otisville location) on October 11th. On October 16th and 17th we also visted the Otisville Elementary School in conjuction with our brother fire companies, Greenville, Otisville & Howells. To see pictures click here.
We also participated in the Middletown Fireman’s Parade on October 5th see our photo page to for pictures of that.
We had a great time participating in the OCVFA Parade. Click here to see our parade pictures.
This has been a busy month for us. Our building committee has been hard at work, our members have been busy training, we have several members in various training classes with the county and we have gone to a few wet downs to support our neighboring fire companies.
Our site has some additions to it and we are busy re-building it to be easier to navigate and we hope to have it re-published in the coming month.
As always thank you for visiting and for your continued support.
Please excuse our websites dormant state over the past month. We have been hard at work getting things done and responding to calls. We will be adding more info and pictures to our page over the next couple of weeks so be sure to check back often.
Be sure to check our photo page for new photos of us at the fair

We held our first fundraiser today, our Fireworks Display which went off without a hitch, the weather held out, the turn out was as impressive as always, the crowd was fantastic and the fireworks were spectacular as usual, all of which helps make this a great fundraiser. We want to thank everyone who came out to show their support and watch the fireworks.
A special thanks goes to Mike Romano of Mike Romano Electric and John Sagaria of Fireworks Extravaganza who donated the fireworks, two of our Chiefs who also happen to be pyrotechnicians Chief John Doty & Assistant Chief Mike Masters and of course the rest of the pyro crew who all donated their time to setup and fire the show, they did an amazing job as always.
We also want to thank our event chair persons Paul Barth and Marie Bodnar-Doty for the work they put into making this event happen and to each one of our members who supported each other and this Fire Company by coming out in force as we had 33 members working hard and working together to make this event such a success, they each did a superb job!

At midnight we had a little get together to celebrate the beginning of something that took a lot of hard work and determination by everybody involved. As we begin this endeavor on our very first day of being in service we would like to thank Mt. Hope Town Supervisor Bill Novak, the rest of the town board members and staff for believing in what we were and still are trying to accomplish and for taking the time to learn the truth and the facts and for giving us the chance to follow through on something that has been ongoing for more than 2 decades. We also thank our neighboring fire companies for there support, positivity and well wishes.
We would like to take a moment to thank our members who put in the required time and effort to ensure that we had everything that was required for us to be in the capacity to fully serve our community in the short 2 weeks we had to pull this off.
We would like to also take a moment and not forget to thank our family members for their continued support in the choices we made to be volunteers and risk our lives for free for our neighbors and for the time away from family dinners and events to be there when the call to serve rings in, without our family waiting for us at home and supporting us we would not be able to be the volunteers that we are.
