March was a busy month for volunteers

March 2017 turned out to be a busy month for Penfield volunteers.  The month started out with a windstorm  reaching 64MPH winds that produced a dozen alarms in a few hours the late night of March 1st, three days later on the 4th volunteers would be called to a house fire on Creek street as some of the coldest temperatures of the season set in, and four days later on the 8th 81MPH winds tore through Penfield and the surrounding towns.  That storm alone produced over a month's worth of alarms over the various hours that kept volunteers busy.  And right in the middle of the month 26.2 inches of snow fell. 
In total well over 100 calls for the month, including several stand-bys, plus the regular drills and monthly meeting.
