CONTRATULATIONS to Liane Schneller and Rob Elwell for passing their NYS EMT EXAM!!  


On January 4 at approximately 6:45 pm last night, Vigilant was notified of a Hazardous Condition in the area of Union Road and Holland Avenue. Upon arrival, Vigilant 9 along with Erie County HazMat and the DEC established the incident was a diesel spill from the corner of Union & Center Road, which appeared to leaked into the storm sewers causing fumes to enter houses along Holland Avenue. No ill effects were noted from the residences that were affected and the houses were ventilated. All buildings were investigated to make sure the safety of all residents.

After mitigating the situation, crews were back in service around 8:30 pm. Great collaborative team work with Vigilant, Erie County HazMat, DEC, WS Town Emergency Management and the Town Sewer Department and Highway. Thank you to the public for thier cooperation
during this matter.
