HULBERTON – The Fancher-Hulberton-Murray Fire Company hosted an open house this past Saturday and Sunday, part of the fifth annual Recruit NY effort to attract more members to fire departments.

The fire company based in Hulberton did live car fire demonstrations and vehicle extrication demonstrations.

There was also a bounce house both days and a Future Firefighters of Fancher-Hulberton-Murray Fire Company station for the kids with many activities for all ages.

The EMS team gave free glucose testing, blood pressure checks and gave out free First Aid kits.

The event resulted in eight new social members and three new active members, with several people saying they were interested in applying in the near future, said Gary Sicurella, FHM president.

Mercy Flight flew in on Sunday and gave the public a chance to see the helicopter up close.
