IS YOUR ADDRESS VISIBLE ON YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS?

IS YOUR ADDRESS VISIBLE ON YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS?

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.

Click on the image below to view and/or purchase a reflective sign. If you have any questions regarding home address signage, please contact us at 518-883-3611

Smoke Detector Program

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.

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:

Broadalbin-Kennyetto Auxiliary
P.O. Box 219

9/11 – Never Forget

This year marks the 15th anniversary of 9/11, one of the worst tragedies to occur on American soil. During our remembrance ceremony this year, three wreaths will be placed at the 9/11 memorial located in front of the firehouse to honor those who died on that fateful day – the Broadalbin Police Dept will be placing a wreath to honor the police and civilians who perished in the attacks; the commanders of the VFW and American Legion will be placing a wreath to honor the military personnel and civilians killed at the Pentagon; and the Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company will be placing a wreath to honor the firemen and civilians who lost their lives at Ground Zero.

Further, a flag that flew over a New York City firehouse in Harlem, which was presented to the Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company by the Pifko family, will be raised by Boy Scout Troop 51. It will be flown for 24 hours in memory of those we all lost that day.

We hope that you will join us at the Broadalbin-Kennyetto Fire Company firehouse on Pine Street on Sunday, September 11 at 7pm, to commemorate this horrific event which changed so many of our lives, to remember the fallen, and to celebrate the heroes who emerged during and after the attacks.
