Fire Department

The Pittsford Fire Department has been proudly serving the citizens of Pittsford and Florence with Pride, Professionalism and Dedication since 1948.

The 44 members of the Pittsford Fire Department are lead into action by Chief Bill Hemple who has been serving as Chief since 2017. We currently respond out of 2 stations utilizing 8 pieces of apparatus which include 3 Engines, 1 Ladder Truck, 1 Tanker, 1 Medium Duty Rescue, 1 Wildland/Brush Truck, and 1 Off-Road Utility Vehicle. The Pittsford Fire Department has an initial response area of approximately 45 square miles protecting roughly 3000 residents of Pittsford and Florence. The Pittsford Fire Department is also part of the Rutland County Fire Mutual Aid Association in which we provide mutual aid response to those departments in the county that request it, and when that comes into play, our secondary response area increases to nearly 300 square miles with a population of nearly 56,000.

If you are interested in joining the Pittsford Fire Department you can pick up an application from the Town Clerks Office or stop by the firehouse on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday’s of each month.
