Thank you Senator Tedisco for recognizing the hard work and dedication our members have to this community.
Welcome Josh Larimore to the Pleasant Square Volunteer Fire Company. Josh was sworn in last night as our newest member. Thank you for stepping up to serve your community.
Monday evening fire fighters from Pleasant Square VFC, Meco VFD, Sir William Johnson VFD, and Sammonsville VFD participated in a joint training at the Concordia Club, in the Town of Johnstown, that simulated several operations typically utilized at structure fire scenes.
Today we were dispatched to a smoke condition which turned out to be a working structure fire. Our initial crews made a fantastic stop and contained the fire to the kitchen with minor smoke and heat damage to the rest of the first floor. Meco was automatically dispatched for our daytime mutual aid agreement. Gloversville Fire was requested as the FAST team and Mayfield was placed on standby for us. The Fulton County EMO office, Fulton County Investigation Team and GAVAC were also requested to the scene. Yet again another great example of teamwork in action. Thank you all for your assistance and our thoughts are with the homeowner.

Last night at a little after 10:00pm we were dispatched for what sounded like a very complicated and involved Motor Vehicle Accident on State Highway 349. We closed the road for approximately 3 hours and we would like to thank everyone who had to be rerouted. We would like to thank the two civilians who stopped to assist before our arrival. Also we would like to thank Meco VFC, the Sheriff's office, the New York State Police, National Grid, the Fulton County Emergency Management Office, and the Fulton County Emergency Communication Center for their outstanding effort last night.
