Orchard Park Fire Company

The Orchard Park Fire Company was incorporated in the year 1883 by a group of local men to serve the Hamlet of Orchard Park and the Town of East Hamburg. In those years the Company consisted of nothing more than a ladder and a bucket brigade. It was not until the very early 1900's that the company acquired an old frame building on East Quaker Street to become the first fire station.

Just before World War I the first piece of apparatus was purchased by the company. It was a horse drawn wagon with a motorized rotary water pump. A few years later a chemical truck was placed in service.

Since that period the Fire Company was evolved into one of the most highly trained and well equipped fire units in the area.

The Orchard Park Fire Company now comprises nearly 100 active firefighters and six pieces of aparatus. housed in two upto date fire stations.

The Ordhard Park Fire Company meets on the first Tuesday of each month. All correspondence can be forwarded to P.O. Box 1140, Orchard Park, NY 14127-1140
