2014-15 Election Results
The official results of our 2014-2015 Elections.
In 2013 Upper Mountain Fire Company lead Niagara County in calls by volunteer agencies with a total of 1,368.
For every call on that sheet, there is an empty chair at a dinner table, a bed that is missing a warm body, friends who had to go on to have fun without us, or the brave few who would wait at the hall until we could return.
This classroom program is designed to provide the background knowledge necessary to perform rescue operations at a structural collapse incident.
