The Mottville Fire company's members joined with the Skaneateles fire department in a bus extrication class on one of the hottest Saturdays of this summer. Texas Battalion chief Ron Moore taught members techniques in taking a school bus apart in order to extricate any children safely.

Residents in the Mottville area may notice work going on in and around the fire station. After nearly 40 years its time to make a few repairs and upgrades. The heating and lighting systems are being upgraded. Concrete is being replaced in the station floor drain and door openings. Outside we will have a new sidewalk along the building.

I would like to remind people that the Mottville Fire Co still offers our "help us find you" reflective address signs. We will make one for anyone who wants to be found easier during an emergency. The cost is $15 for each two-sided sign. Contact 685-6324 for your sign.

Join the fun at the 19th annual Mottville Golf outing at 9a.m. Sept. 4 at the Links at Sunset Ridge in Marcellus. Contact 224-2755 for details and sign up. The Mottville Fire Co. is professionally staffed by volunteers.

Timothy Baker is the chief of the Mottville Volunteer Fire Company.
