The East Greenbush Fire Company, with support of the East Greenbush Board of Fire Commissioners District #3, are happy to announce
the re-opening of their Explorer Post #11. The Post had suspended operations last March in response to the Covid pandemic. |
This reopening will allow young people aged 15-21 to engage in all aspects of the fire service,
from hoses, ladders and fire trucks, to service to the community, like participating in Wreaths Across America.
All done in a carefully monitored, safe atmosphere. The Post has always been a valued part of the East Greenbush Fire Company family. |
We encourage any interested young people and their parents to attend a meet and greet at the Park Station 68 Phillips Rd
East Greenbush on Thursday June 17 at 7:00. This meeting will give you a chance
to meet the Post advisors and have basic Post activities and rules explained and
to see some of the fire equipment you will be learning about and working with. |
So, if you know of anyone who may enjoy learning about the fire service and first responders, please pass
this information on. Any questions, please contact Post advisors Tracy Cullum (518-591-9267) or Kurt Schlachter (518-542-6983). |
Per our attorney's guidance we regret to inform you that our Banquet Hall and Pavilion rentals are shut down.
We are not accepting any new reservations at this time.
