The Skaneateles Fire Department is a volunteer organization, committed to providing the best emergency services possible to the citizens of the Skaneateles Fire District. The objective for the Department is to protect life and property, prevent and extinguish fires, and initiate rescue in hazardous situations within the laws of the State of New York as well as the policies and ordinances of the Village of Skaneateles.
To maintain our high level of service, we are always looking for interested individuals 18 years of age and older to become a valued asset of the Skaneateles Fire Department. We are people like yourself – home and business owners, parents, and students. We will provide all necessary equipment and training for a Firematic membership. See a chief or officer for an application packet.
If entering a burning building is not to your liking, the SVFD, Inc. (the corporate side of things, set up primarily to accept tax deductible contributions) has an Associate membership. This is also on the application and can be checked in the appropriate place. If you are interested in becoming a member or are just curious about what we have to offer, stop by Station #1 Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. or call us at 315-685-3497.
