Oswego County Firefighters Continue to Help in Flood Aftermath

Fulton – Several Oswego County firefighters will spend their Independence Day holiday helping to deal with the aftermath of last week’s flooding. Firefighters from Williamstown, Pulaski, Parish, Oswego Town and Granby Center left for 24-hour assignments in Broome County early Monday morning, July 3. Four or five more units are expected to leave on Tuesday, July 4, said Oswego County Fire Coordinator John Hinds.

Last week, Oswego County firefighters were sent to Herkimer and Broome counties through the state’s mutual aid system. They brought with them protective gear, portable generators, pumps, chain saws, and other equipment to help in cleanup efforts.

“This may be an all-week process as the flood waters recede, and damage is assessed,” said Hinds.
