Newton Abbott firefighters, as well as volunteers from other area companies, have given up the comforts of home overnight in order to provide safe and effective emergency assistance to the community.  Fortunately, as of this writing, no property or life-threatening emergencies have been reported, and our members have enjoyed the time camping out at the fire station.

Chief Brian Evaldi has issued crew assignments to available volunteers, ensuring coverage throughout the duration of the blizzard currently affecting the region.

Remember, driving bans have been issued in the towns of Hamburg, Orchard Park, West Seneca, the City of Lackawanna, and other neighboring communities.  Travel conditions are dangerous, and you should remain in your current location until the bans are lifted.
