Kinderhook Fire Department
New Member Campaign

The Kinderhook Fire Department has a long history of providing emergency services and assistance within our fire district and to adjoining communities. The men and women who respond for the Kinderhook Fire Department take pride in helping their neighbors whenever and wherever support is needed.

  •  Fact: The reliance on Community Fire Departments continues to rise, yet the number of responding Volunteer Firefighters is on the decline. So the question remains:
    "Will we have enough firefighters to handle emergencies when called?"

In response, the Kinderhook Fire Department is sounding a Recruitment Alarm. Like many fire departments in the Capital District, we need to increase our membership to respond to fire calls and other 911 emergencies. Membership made up of people like you, that live or work in the Kinderhook Fire District and are willing to join other dedicated men and women volunteer firefighters who serve this community proudly.

If you are 18 years or 65+, get the training that is suited to you and respond with us!
