The New Windsor Fire Department offers the opportunity to serve and protect an area of approximately 5.2 square miles in the northeast part of New Windsor, NY. While the majority of our district is residential, we have recently witnessed commercial development along the southerly and westerly borders. Due to our location in the original Town of New Windsor, residential construction is minimal, allowing us to focus on keeping our community safe.
Within our district, we also have bulk storage facilities housing over one million gallons of highly flammable liquids, extending from the Newburgh city line up to the Cornwall town line. This presents unique challenges that our dedicated team is well-prepared to handle.
At the New Windsor Fire Department, we take great pride in our ability to provide a wide range of services. These include fire suppression, rescue operations, fire prevention initiatives, hazardous materials management, public education, and disaster mitigation. Our members are known for their exceptional professionalism and courteousness, ensuring that each interaction with residents, business partners, and visitors is met with the highest level of service.
With an average of approximately 250 calls per year, we are constantly ready and equipped to respond to emergencies. As a 100% volunteer department, we rely on the commitment and dedication of our members. We are always seeking new individuals who are passionate about serving their community and willing to undergo extensive training to become part of our team.
By joining the New Windsor Fire Department, you will have the opportunity to make a difference and contribute to the safety and well-being of our community.
