Learn More About a New Addition to our Fleet: Quint 2910

SPENCERPORT, N.Y. - The Spencerport Fire District is pleased to announce the addition of a new tool to serve the residents of our fire district for many years to come. Quint 2910 is a dynamic apparatus that responds to structure fires, automatic alarms, high angle rescues, rope rescues, and fumes calls.

2910 was built at the Pierce Manufacturing Facility in Appleton, Wisconsin and was delivered to us in Summer 2022. 2910 replaces our former ladder truck 2911 which was almost 25 years old. Quint 2910 was placed into service in Fall 2022.

Here are some key components of the new truck:

  • Carries 300 gallons of water
  • Has a bucket for firefighters to safely operate in
  • Equipped with forcible entry, ventilation, and search tools
  • Responds to structure fires, automatic alarms, high angle rescues, rope rescues, and fumes calls.

                      2024 Adopted Budget

On October 17th, 2023 the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Spencerport Fire District adopted a 2024 budget which calls for a $0.375 increase per thousand in  the Town of Ogden and a $0.314 increase per thousand in the town of Parma.  For a taxpayer residing in a home assessed for $250,000 the increase amounts to $7.82 per month for an Ogden resident and $6.54 per month for a Parma resident, thereby totaling to an annual fire district cost of $405 and $394 respectively.

The increases can be attributed to factors beyond the control of the Fire District such as the cost of apparatus replacement increasing approximately twenty-six  percent over the last two years, the cost of equipment increasing nearly eighteen percent over the 2023 budget, the cost of fuel and increased vehicle maintenance needed as a result of responding to nearly 1000 calls for service annually, as well as inflationary price in general.

Also, in 2023, after receiving voter approval, the District started construction of a new training facility located at Station #3 on S. Union Street.  Upon completion this facility will provide the 100-member volunteer workforce the ability to conduct multiple types of training scenarios to hone their skills to provide the community the best fire and life safety protection possible. Lastly the District is embarking on the addition of two paid administrative positions in 2024.  These positions would provide fire prevention activities for school aged children, fire extinguisher training, CPR and first-aid training, and to also fulfill administrative duties required by NYS Laws and Regulations. In addition, they will assist the Spencerport Volunteer Firemen’s Association so that the level of emergency service our residents have come to expect shall be maintained.

The Fire District works diligently to provide the best fire protection at the lowest possible cost and we have our local Volunteer workforce of almost 100 firefighters to thank for that!

Highlights from our 2023 Open House

      
SPENCERPORT, N.Y. - We held our annual Open House on Sunday, October 8 which is also the first day of Fire Prevention week in 2023. Families had the opportunity to learn about fire safety, enjoy refreshments, spent time with our partnering agencies who also attended, and interacted with our firefighters. For everyone who attended, we hope you learned about fire safety and had as much fun as we did!
  • We received a fire call toward the end of Open House. The families who were still at the fire house had a chance to see how quickly our firefighters gear up and leave the station lights and sirens.
  • Two Terry Taylor Elementary students kids made a selfless contribution to our fire department. Olivia and David McGill collected hundreds of bottles and cans for over a year, returned them, and donated their earnings to us. From all of us at the Spencerport Fire District, thank you Olivia and David for your donation and for making Spencerport a great community to be a part of!
