The Fairport Fire Department consists of three companies, The Deland Hose Company, The Fairport Hook & Ladder Company and The Fairport Protectives. Originally, these companies performed separate functions in the event of a fire, but for many years now, their functions have been merged into a single department. Since it's modest start, the Fairport Fire Department has grown to an organization of over 80 members that operate out of two stations. The Department operates more than 9 pieces of firefighting and rescue equipment, answers more than 750 alarms per year and serves approximately 27,000 people. A great deal of time goes into maintaining our organization and providing quality training programs for our firefighters.
The Fire Department will provide all needed equipment and training courses.
