New York Fire Departments get emergency canned drinking water


Anheuser-Busch is teaming up with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) for the fourth consecutive year to donate emergency drinking water to volunteer fire departments nationwide, including more than 25,500 cans to seven fire departments in New York to help them be ready for the 2022 wildfire season.

As wildfire season lengthens and increases in severity each year, clean drinking water remains essential in addressing firefighters’ hydration needs – yet many volunteer departments struggle with limited budget and resources. 

The water deliveries in New York will help address this critical need, while supporting a community that Anheuser-Busch’s Baldwinsville brewery is proud to call home. 

Senator John W. Mannion said:”I’ve been to Central New York’s Anheuser-Busch plant and I know how much the workers and the management care about our communities. It is no surprise that the company is giving back by supporting our volunteer fire departments with drinking water donations ahead of wildfire season. 

“I commend Anheuser-Busch for supporting our emergency responders and for its continued commitment to the quality of life in Central New York.”

Albert A. Stirpe Jr., Member, NYS Assembly 127th District, said:”We want to thank Anheuser-Busch for recognising the hard work and dedication of the members of the Cicero Fire Department through their Emergency Drinking Water Program. 

“Literally walking through fire to save lives, this water donation will help our firefighters in emergency situations and is not only welcome, it is vital to their health and safety. This is a proud moment to have them recognised as one of seven recipients for this program.”
