Twin District Volunteer Fire Company

Twin District Volunteer Fire Company 100% Volunteer Fire Company
(18)

Founded in the early 1940's when several men in the area reacted to the unsatisfactory performance of the South End Fire Company on Aurora street. The South End Fire Company hand not been answering calls, and neighbors of the William and Aurora streets community took steps to form their own Fire Co.. Sometime in the mid 1950's the Town of Lancaster signed an exclusive agreement with the Twin District VFC to protect the south east portion of the town and the South End Fire Company was disbanded. In the 1950's & 60's the company had a contract with the Town of Cheektowaga to cover the 'no man's land' west of transit road. Boy scout Troop 545 had their first meeting May 12, 1948 & continues to be active in the community through Twin District to this day. Their original log cabin scout lodge was dedicated in 1952 with a new home being built on site in 2010.

Mission: MISSION STATEMENT: TO STRIVE, WITH A POSITIVE AND PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE, TO PROTECT AND ENHANCE THE QUALITY OF LIFE TO THE CITIZENS WHO LIVE, WORK AND VISIT THE TOWN OF LANCASTER THROUGH A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM OF EMERGENCY SERVICES DIRECTED TOWARD PUBLIC EDUCATION, PREVENTION AND CONTROL IN THE AREAS OF FIRE, RESCUE, MEDICAL EMERGENCIES, HAZARDOUS MATERIAL INCIDENTS AND DISASTERS. โ€œ WE STILL MAKE HOUSE CALLSโ€

Training Tip: Expect the unexpected. At Eggertsvilleโ€™s fire last night firefighters went to open up the garage and discovered that it was framed in as an added room in the house. Be prepared to find situations like these as well as unseen void spaces, updates and renovations.

Twin District strives to maintain a strong relationship with the community we serve. Although we are dedicated to going above and beyond the usual call of duty while partaking in community events, we are limited by COVID-19 during these trying times. It is because of this, and after careful consideration, that we are abstaining from partaking in private community events such as birthday parties, parades, and other like events for the foreseeable future.

We view safety as our number one priority and believe that by limiting our participation in these events, the risk of potential exposure to our members and others in the community will be minimized. Additionally, due to the great influx of requests, we would regret only being able to participate in some events and not others due to potential limitations derived from the nature of being a volunteer company.

We appreciate your understanding as we continue through these unprecedented times together. We believe actions such as limiting exposure will promote health and allow us to continue to serve you with the best 24/7 fire, rescue, and emergency medical services possible.

Happy EMS week! We are proud to have not only EMTs, but AEMTs, paramedics, and doctors in our fire company. ๐Ÿ’ชWe apprecia...

At least once a week we are performing Decon on all of our vehicles with this new product that we purchased.

It is environmentally friendly and biodegradable and 99.9% effective against all infectious processes including COVID-19. ๐Ÿฆ 
In addition, it performs a Decon of any toxic substances left over from fire fighting ๐Ÿš’
