Why become a volunteer firefighter? Life Experiences

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.

CHVFC Dedicates AED’S

From the official CHVFC website:

On Tuesday March 12 the Coeymans Hollow Volunteer Fire Corporation dedicated 3 Automated External Defibrillaters that were purchased with memorial donations in the loving memory of J. C. Flach who passed away in a tragic accident. The Flach family set up a memorial donation fund for the Coeymans Hollow Volunteer Fire Corporation. With the donations the Fire Corporation purchased three AED’S, for the firehouse and two trucks to provide emergency defibrillation.

The Flach family, Parents Liz and John, their son Keith and J.C.’s finance Nicole Bautochka attended the dedication. The AED in the firehouse has a Memorial Placque placed on the side of the case.
