Newland-Wood Fire Company 59 from the Village of Stillwater hosted four other local fire departments last weekend for a firefighting practice session at the Saratoga County Office of Emergency Services fire training center in Ballston Spa.

This practice session concluded a five-month long joint training schedule between these local units which included the Arvin Hart Fire Department (AHFD), Mechanicville Fire Department, Hillcrest Fire Department, and Hemstreet Park Fire Department.

We sincerely thank our mutual partners for the opportunity to learn from them and look forward to resuming our combined training in the months ahead.
