The mission of the Hammondsport Fire Department is to protect and serve the citizens and countless visitors who live and recreate in the Town of Urbana and Village of Hammondsport. We cover 44 sq miles of land and water out of 1 station with 6 pieces of fire apparatus.
We run with:
2000 Saulsbury CAFS Engine 1500gpm pump 750 gallon water tank with 50 gallons of Class A and B foam each
1993 Simon LTI 75’ Quint with 2000gpm pump 750 gallons of water
1997 Saulsbury heavy rescue with all the toys
2009 4 Guys Pumper/Tanker with 1000gm pump 2500 gallons water 30 gallon class A foam tank
2006 CET Chevy Diesel Brush unit with CAFS and 10 gallon Class A foam tank
2008 Harbor Guard Fire Boat with twin 225 hp outboards and a 300hp inboard that provides 1500gpm pumping capabilities.
We have a roster of 45 dedicated members and 6 juniors. We meet twice a week for drills (Sunday ams) and work nights (Wednesday pm). We are blessed to have a 5 member Board of Fire Commissioners who serve the district with integrity, fiscal responsiveness and who take pride in the department they serve. We also enjoy the many visiting firefighters who stop at the station for a visit. We have had them stop in from Germany, England, Canada and virtually every state of the union. We also pride ourselves in the fact that our local citizens stop in and support us in our many fund raisers. Our station doors our always wide open. A Fire Chief could not ask for a better group of volunteers who put their differences and egos aside when they enter the fire station doors.
