    As you can see there have not been very many updates lately, mostly due to there being a lack of any news. In the meantime I am curious about what you think about the site. Is there anything in particular you would like to see? Are there things you like or dislike about the page and it’s current layout? Please feel free to Email me with any suggestions you have to improve this site.

In the next few months I will be looking at ways to securely store our By-Laws/SOG’s/SOP’s/Box Book on the page as well as create a new Fire Prevention page that will provide links, informaiton and activities for all ages in regards to fire prevention.
  Carnival Committee Announcement: Applications for prospective bands to play the 2013 Carnival are no longer being accepted. Final details are being arranged and the lineups will be announced within the coming months.
As many know, on Christmas Eve a great tragedy had befallen the West Webster Fire Department as four of their members were gunned down in the line of duty. Two members, Michael “Chip” Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka were killed in the line of duty. Two other members, Theodore Scardino and Joseph Hofstetter, were seriously wounded and are currently recovering in the hospital.
This is the result of an unthinkable act of pure evil, one that will stay with us for the rest of our lives. These gentlemen, their families and the department are forever changed.
Over the last few days, I’ve struggled with finding the right words to express how I and the rest of us feel about what has happened only to find that there are no words.To the members of West Webster Fire Department and to the families of those fallen and injured, we send our most sincere condolences. You will never be forgotten and we will continue to serve in your honor. May you rest in Peace.
In lieu of flowers please visit the following page to contribute in any way possible.
