Crawfish Boil Enjoyed by All

“Mud bugs” was the menu special last Saturday at the Off The Clock Bar in Schumannsville as the McQueeney VFD held a crawfish boil fundraiser that afternoon. Almost 1000 pounds of crawfish, potatoes, corn and sausage plus hamburgers and hot dogs were prepared by the McQueeney volunteers and consumed by supporters from the community. The meal was accompanied by a silent auction, a bake sale and a display of the department’s firetrucks. McQueeney VFD would like to thank all those who partook of the meal and also those who donated auction items and made other monetary donations to the department. A special thanks to GVEC who donated two PortaCool units for the event.

McQueeney Volunteers Train Hard

It is probably little known and underappreciated how hard our volunteers work to prepare themselves for the variety of situations they have to deal with on a regular basis. Training takes place three Monday evenings each month, plus often times on weekends and other weekdays. Often they jointly train with other area departments. Training includes medical, fire and other emergency situations. Please thank and praise these members for their selfless dedication to the welfare of our community!

Mc Queeney Volunteers Take Part in Tower Climb

Three members of the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department participated in the annual Tower Climb commemorating those firefighters and first responders that lost their lives in the terrorist attack at the twin towers in New York on 9/11/2001. The participants climb the Tower of the Americas twice to represent the 110 floors of the towers that were destroyed.  On that fateful day, 343 firefighters, 70 law enforcement offers and 9 EMS personnel perished attempting to save the lives of the occupants of the towers. Representing the McQueeney Volunteer Fire Department were Interim Chief Ray Salas, Lt. Jonathan Dominguez,  and Lt. Stephen Talavera.
