Erie County- The West Webster Volunteer Fire Department from Monroe County was honored at the Erie County Fair today.

As part of the Firemen's Day at the fair, West Webster was invited to lead the parade to pay tribute to the two firefighters from the department who were shot and killed while responding to a call last Christmas Eve.

Ted Scardino was one of the firefighters wounded in the attack and says he was honored to be recognized by Erie County like this.

More than 60 fire companies participated in the activities and were all excited to support West Webster.
