Welcome to the Official Site for Elmsford Fire Department:

Thank you for visiting.

The Elmsford Fire Department is 100% volunteer, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We train continually, learning the latest skills in firefighting and emergency medical treatment, providing the highest quality Fire and EMS service to the Village of Elmsford and our Fire Protection Districts. Located 20 minutes north of New York City, the Elmsford Fire Department is comprised of two companies: Our ladder company: Elmsford Fire Company #1 and our engine company: Live Oak Engine Company #1.

We are always looking for new members to be a part of this great team. I hope you find our site informative; and again, I thank you for stopping by.

Route 287 unusual MVA

Share via email

Engine 137 and Ladder 55 were dispatched to an unusual motor vehicle accident on Route 287 eastbound at mile marker 0.2

Upon arrival, responding units were advised by the New York State Trooper on the scene that the two occupants were not injured, but could not exit the bus because the guard rail had penetrated the main door, blocking same.

FD personnel used a variety of tools, including a K-12 rotary saw, to remove the occupants and secure Medical Aid Refusals from both.
