Auxiliary Pancake Breakfast
Thank you so much for supporting the Walworth Fire Department Auxiliary's recent Pancake Breakfast.

It was great to have so many people drop in for a delicious breakfast.

So nice to have everyone come out to visit with neighbors and catch up on the last few years; we are almost back to normal!
Do You Know These Guys?
The WFD recently came into possession of this 1940's era photo of the Walworth FD Baseball team taken at what is believed to be the Wayne County Fairgrounds in Palmyra. If you recognize anyone and can put a name to a face, please contact us!
Be a good Neighbor!

Like the commercial says; "Be a good neighbor!"

Did you know that just 30 years ago you had 17 minutes to escape a burning home and today you only have 3-4 minutes? Modern home building materials and furnishings may hold up to wear and tear but they burn much faster.

The ability to get water on the fire quickly can mean the difference between a small fire and total loss. Winter creates a number of challenges but one we can control is access to fire hydrants. Clearing snow away from the hydrant on all sides for about two feet makes it easier for the Fire Department to hook up hose and send water to the fire.

The Walworth Fire Department is a sponsor of the Hydrant Helper Program but not all hydrants are kept clear. If you have one on your street, neighbors can take turns clearing the snow away to allow the Fire Department quick access.

Be a good neighbor for your street and the Fire Department. Help us help you!!
