Helicopter to drop in at Cornwall Fire Dept. open house

CORNWALL’S VOLUNTEER FIRE Department will host an open house on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m.-noon at their Route 30 station.

CORNWALL — The Cornwall Volunteer Fire Department invites townspeople to an open house on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon at the fire station located at 1952 Route 30. 
Folks can learn more about what Cornwall’s first responders do and how the department works, whether just curious, looking for a fun thing to do with kids, or interested in how one can contribute to the work of the department. A medical helicopter will land for a visit, too.
The CVFD is always in need of people interested in learning more about treating injuries and fighting fires, but there is a job for everyone in the fire service and EMS community. Are you a truck driver? A spreadsheet master? An event planner? Comfortable writing grants? Are you a social media whiz? You can help your neighbors and the department without being on-call for emergencies.
There will be light refreshments and activities for all. At 10:30 a.m. the LifeNet helicopter from Ticonderoga will do a demonstration landing on the back lawn of the station.
