On 3/21/16 The Walden Fire Dept. was dispatched as Mutual Aid to a Hay / Brush Fire in the Campbell Hall Fire District. Within minutes Asst. Chief Sager and Asst. Chief Totonis responded to the call along with Tanker 239, Brush Truck 242, and UTV 243. Chief Williams and the rest of the apparatus stayed in our district to ensure proper coverage and to coordinate relief manpower later in the day for the initial crew.
Upon arrival to the scene the men and women of the Walden Fire Dept. found hundreds of bales hay on fire with brush fires starting in the surrounding area. In fact the structures around the farm faced the danger of being engulfed in the flames.
Walden Units remained on scene for over 12 hours battling the flames with wind gusts hitting more than 30 miles per hour. Along with Walden over 30 Departments between 3 counties helped in the efforts to contain the blaze.

The members of The Walden Fire Dept. also responded to Stewart ANG Base to pay honor to the TSgt Joseph Lemm of the 105th Security Forces Squadron, since he was brought home today. TSgt Joseph Lemm was killed in action in Afghanistan and was also a Police Detective with the NYPD for over 15 Years.
You both served the communities well!

The Walden Fire Dept. was excited and eager to Welcome Home one its OWN. One of the Department's members suffered a serious injury while at a training incident. He was then transported via Helicopter to Westchester Medical Center where he underwent several surgeries.
After speaking to Kevin today he told me that he was sincerely touched in the warm welcome he received from his brothers and sisters and he is just excited to be home. He in fact is eager to get back into serving his community.
Kevin once again on behalf of the Dept. we are glad you are back home brother!

On Saturday April 26, 2014 the Walden Fire Dept. held its open house. It was a great day for the Dept. to showcase what we it does and provide some fun activities to the community members.
The dept. provided some great BBQ that was cooked by its members and some great refreshments. There was also some great deserts that included baked goods, cupcakes, and a ton of candy.
The members also walked the visitors through the different steps of “cutting up” a car with the “jaws of life.” In fact some of the visitors even had the opportunity to participate, and they all stated that it was a whole lot of fun and much tougher then they thought it would be.
Some visitors also elected to climb a few ladders and to assist with putting “out” an “oven fire”. So the activities where nonstop for all the visitors regardless of age.
Plans are already on the way for next year’s open house! We all look forward to seeing you then, please keep an eye out for the date!
