Coping With County Fires

HALFMOON — The group After The Fire will hold its monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 25 at 7 p.m. at the Halfmoon Town Hall on Lower Newtown Road.

After The Fire is a non-profit organization that helps Saratoga County residents who have suffered a loss due to fire. The organization depends entirely on donations and is entirely comprised of volunteers.

After being paged by Fire Control, members respond to a fire scene, providing the family with gift cards, personal care items, Red Cross referral, a night’s stay at a participating hotel or motel, informational material, emotional support—whatever is needed to help the family through an extremely difficult time.

Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. as follows: October and November at Eagle Matt Lee Fire House on Washington Street in Ballston Spa; April, May, June and September at Halfmoon Town Hall.

Anyone interested in becoming a member, or wanting more information on After The Fire, may attend a meeting, visit the website www.afterthefire.org or leave a message on voicemail at 518-435-4571.
