Our Videos

5-Alarm Challenge

Good Morning America sponsored a contest they called ‘GMA’s 5 Alarm Firefighter’s Challenge’.  The challenge was to submit a video of our own interpretation of any portion of the song “Safe and Sound” as recorded by Capital Cities. While we didn’t win, our department had fun throughout the whole process.  Special thanks to Alyssa Labrie, our master videographer and editor. Without her vision and artistry, this would be just another firefighter video.

Last Alarm

PLAINFIELD, MA – Members of the Goshen Fire Departement were honored to attend the funeral services for Chief Dennis Thatcher of the Plainfield MA Fire Department.

Rest easy, Dennis. We’ll take it from here.

MA State Police Dispatcher Mike Perkins deserves the credit for providing us with this moment. His calm but strong delivery gives credit to his profession.

Our National Anthem

(in three-part harmony)

WESTFIELD, MA – Goshen’s Junior firefighter Hannah Labrie along with her classmates and fellow athletes Emma Kuntz and Grace Plumer sing the National Anthem to kick off the 2019 Central / West Division II Championship outdoor track meet at Westfield State University in Westfield, MA.

Where are we?

Goshen is located in the eastern foothills of the Berkshires in western Massachusetts approximately three hours west of Boston and two hours east of Albany, NY.  State Route 9 runs through the town’s center.  State Route 112 intersects with Route 9 just west of the town center and runs north.  There are 26.7 miles of secondary roads that are hilly and winding with little or no lighting.  30% of these roads are unimproved (dirt).  At 1,200 feet above sea level, drivers face more challenging winter driving conditions than typically found in the nearby Connecticut River valley.
