Recruitment Detail at Frontier School 
Members of the Hamburg Fire Chief’s Association Recruitment Committee work a booth at the FrontierCentralHigh School’s annual Smart Living Fair. Members of multiple town fire companies were on hand to demonstrate equipment and show students and staff what they offer the town residents in regards to Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Firefighting, in an effort to recruit new members and answer any questions they may have.
Many companies in the Town of Hamburg offer junior memberships or members with restrictions starting as young as age 12. Junior members are trained under direct supervision of company officers with the hopes that when they reach the age of 18, they will become full members of the departments or companies and continue to serve the communities they live in.
Aslo present were Town of Hamburg Police officers Alan Schum and Howie Widman showing students the consequences of drinking and driving. Demonstrations were held with students wearing special goggles used to simulate a person under the influence of alcohol and how alcohol impairs a student’s ability to pass a road side sobriety test.
