Albion mayor thanks fire departments, others who helped at fire on Saturday
Editor’s Note: Albion Mayor Eileen Banker submitted this letter of appreciation for firefighters and other public officials who assisted with the fire Saturday in Albion that damaged three houses.
ALBION – On behalf of the Village of Albion Board I would like to thank all the fire companies that responded to the fire Saturday in Albion: Albion FD, Barre FD, Carlton FD, Clarendon FD, East Shelby FD, Fancher-Hulberton-Murray FD, Holley FD, Kendall FD, Lyndonville FD, Village of Medina FD, Ridgeway FD, Shelby FD, Elba FD, Brockport FD, Middleport FD, Hamlin-Morton-Walker FD, Hartland FD and Oakfield. They all either responded to the scene or filled in during the recent fire on Saturday on East Academy and West State streets in the Village of Albion.
This fire was met with many uncertainties, specifically the explosions, yet each department fought tirelessly to extinguish the fire before it took down many more houses. The danger that each of you faced during this fire did not detour you from doing your job. For that, we are forever grateful.
Thank you to the men and women of the fire service who unselfishly risk their lives to protect the lives and property of our community.
I also want to thank Albion PD, Orleans County Emergency Management Ofiice, COVA, Monroe Ambulance, Orleans County Sheriff’s Department, Orleans County Dispatchers (the voice of the county), NYSEG, National Grid, Village of Albion Water Plant and Albion DPW for all their assistance.
Also, thank you to Roadies Pizzeria and Sports Bar, Stephanie, Connor and Landon Williams, and Alex Breuilly for the pizza and beverages. God bless each of you for all you do and stay safe during these uncertain times!
