On April 28, from 11 AM to 3 PM, the Garrison Volunteer Fire Company is hosting an open house at Station 2 (1616 Route 9).
The four Philipstown fire departments will have apparatus displayed (Cold Spring, Continental Village, Garrison and
North Highlands). Bring the kids to climb on the trucks and take pictures.

The Garrison Volunteer Fire Company is made of up of men and women just like you — members of the community who enjoy getting together to assist with local events, help out in emergencies, and, yes, put out fires.
We clear roads when trees or wires fall, assist with traffic accidents, find lost hikers, investigate alarms, and try to keep our community safe and operating smoothly.
We are not paid, and we help keep Garrison taxes low by taking on infrequent but important jobs for which it would be much more expensive to maintain a standing force of career responders.
You might share these values.
You might enjoy seeing a totally different slice of Garrison from time to time, whether it’s putting out a brush fire next to the library, rushing down new road in a huge truck on the way to a chimney fire, or handling a traffic accident at the Bear Mountain Bridge at six in the morning while fog rolls up the river and the sun breaks over the mountains.
If you haven’t seen and done these things, you should.
You live in one of the world’s most beautiful river valleys, surrounded by some of the world’s best people.
Call us at 424-3709, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Good stuff happens when you least expect it.
