NYS DEC Burn Ban
NYS BURN BAN STARTS THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 2017.
To clear up some commonly asked questions, please read below common answers from NYSDEC website.
- YES! Campfires are allowed. Campfires must be less than 3ft in height and 4ft in diameter. So NO Bonfires! (for Broadalbin Village residents, See Village Code)
- Leaves cannot be burned. So NO, do not burn leaves in your ditch.
- Firewood must be natural. No chemically treated wood as in pressure treated lumber or plywood.
Every second counts in the case of a fire or medical emergency. Being able to quickly locate the correct address can mean the difference between life and death. Here are some tips to help us help you!
– Reflective numbers are highly recommended
– The numbers on residences should be at least 3 inches high
– Numbers should be placed on, above, or at the side of the main entrance, so that they can be easily detected from the street.
– If your house is over 45ft from roadway, reflective numbers should be on mailbox or post.
– Remember – Your mailman always comes the same way. Fire trucks, ambulances and police cars may come from any direction. Be sure to mark BOTH sides of your mailbox or mark your house number in such a way that it may be easily seen, no matter which direction they are approaching.
– Note that fancy numbers or numbers that are spelled out may be aesthetically pleasing but are very difficult to read from the street.

Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company
The Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company Inc. partnered with the American Red Cross is proud to offer a free smoke detector program for citizens who need help paying for a smoke detector and/or battery. This program is offered to families with children and/or seniors who are low-income and reside in single dwellings living within our fire district. This program is free of charge to our citizens. We will come and install up to 3 smoke detectors, check any detectors you have at your home and inform you if you have a sufficient amount of smoke detectors in your home.
A smoke detector is the first line of defense in saving lives. The most common cause of death during a home fire is not from the fire itself, but from the toxic smoke and gases released during a fire. These products of combustion often render victims unconscious or disoriented, leaving them unable to react, especially during the sleeping hours.
The Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company Smoke Detector Program is funded by donations and partnered with The American Red Cross. If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Fire Company at 518-883-3611.
This year for fire prevention week we visited the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District Learning Community Kindergarten, first grade, second grade, as well as Pre-K children and spoke to them about fire safety and showed them our firefighting gear.
Below are photos submitted of Captain Neil Bartholoma and Firefighter Matt Miller speaking to the children.

2016 Annual Memory Lights
The BKFC Auxiliary will, once again, be decorating the CHRISTMAS MEMORY TREE with white lights in memory of our friends and relatives. This tree will be located on the front lawn of the firehouse. The tree will be lit Thanksgiving Eve and will be lit every evening through New Years.
There is a $1.00 per bulb donation for each individual name that is submitted. All proceeds raised through this event are used by the Auxiliary to benefit the firemen, purchase items for the firehouse, and aid victims of fires.
Each name will be listed only once. Stars following the names will designate additional donations for that person. The list of names will be posted in the vestibule window of the firehouse.
Anyone interested in purchasing a MEMORY LIGHT may submit their names and donations to:
President – Sue Zurlo
Vice President – Deb Wells
Secretary – Dennice Davis
Treasurer – Mary Zayicek/Betty Levendusky
