BOLTON VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY INC.
We start off 2023 with an ice rescue call. It wasn’t our first call of the year but it was the first ice rescue call. Mutual aid for Bay Ridge Vol. Fire Company. They were able to get the victim off the ice and on shore safely but we needed to continue to the scene. Elections took place in April. Visit the Chief Officer page and Corporate Officer page to see the results.
