05-29-18 The Broome County Firefighters' Assoc., in conjunction with i-Heart Radio, will hold a Safety Day/Fundraiser on Saturday, June 9, 10 am to 6 pm, at the Oakdale Mall parking lot near the former Macy's store. We hope that everyone will turn out to support this event. We really need to replace the 25 year-old tow vehicle before it requires any more costly repairs. We cannot get the fire safety trailer out to events without this vehicle. We need to purchase a new(er) vehicle soon to keep the fire safety trailer on the road and continue teaching kids about fire safety and what to do if they wake up to hear their smoke alarm going off. We need the support of everyone, especially firefighters, to support this event.

We have set up a gofundme page to support the vehicle: We would really appreciate any donations, no matter how small.

We need help with the event:
  • We still need four fire trucks to display. Please contact us right away if you plan on bringing a truck, so we can reserve a spot for you.
  • We would really like an antique truck to display. If you have one you would like to bring, please contact us right away.
  • We need personnel to monitor the three bouncy houses. If anyone would like to spend a couple hours helping out, please contact us.
  • We need people to take kids through the fire safety house. If you have done this before, we hope that you will volunteer a couple hours to help. If you have not done this before, but would like to learn, please contact us right away. We will be holding a special training session the week of June 4.
If you can assist with any of these, please contact us at
