What's missing from this photo

Each time the firehouse airhorn sounds or a fire truck goes by do you think about how you can help? On Saturday April 26 from 8AM till 2PM and Sunday April 27 10AM till 2PM the Fuller Road Fire Department to holding an open house to showcase what we do. Over the past 20 years the number of volunteer firefighters has declined by 15,000 in New York State. You might ask how you can help? Definitely as a firefighter, as an EMT or maybe as a fire police. There is training for all these positions. We look forward to seeing at our open house.
