ORLEANS/NIAGARA BOCES WELDING STUDENTS HELP OUT RANSOMVILLE FIRE DEPARTMENT

The Welding students at the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center students recently gave a hand to the Ransomville Volunteer Fire Company.  The fire department had been storing their folding chairs on a rack from the 1960’s and needed something more modern that could accommodate them better. 

Bill Leggett, an Electricity/Electronics teacher at the career and tech center, asked Mr. Eric Farrell’s junior class if they would be willing to help out.  “They were great,” says Mr. Leggett.  “The students took the measurements and made a rack that would perfectly fit the size of the chair and have metal wheels to help us be able to move them around.  What an improvement!”
