Belmont is in the southwestern part of NY, fairly close to the PA border. It is a hour and a half to any major city like Buffalo or Rochester NY. We have mostly farmland and forests here. small town america, i guess you would call it. Take care and good luck with them bush fires. What type of equipment do you have? Pumpers? Tankers or tenders? Initial Attack or Mini pumpers?
