Germantown Hose Company #1
The Germantown Hose Company #1 is located approximately 100 miles north of New York City on the east banks of the Hudson River.
The Department provides fire protection for the Town of Germantown, New York. Our active volunteers are trained in fire suppression and rescue operations. Our Department operates out of one main fire station. The Department was founded in 1908. Our department serves a rural bedroom community of some 24 square miles in New York's Hudson River Valley. We also provide mutual aid assistance to several neighboring communities.
The Department operates 2 engines, 1 engine/tanker, 1 heavy rescue truck, 1 light rescue/brush vehicle, 1 EMS van, 1 Ice Rescue/Command Van and a Rescue Boat for water rescue in the Hudson River. Our volunteers are also trained in ice/cold water rescue as well as confined space rescue.
Our Thoughts, Prayers and Hearts Go Out to Our Fallen Brothers.
Your Supreme Sacrifice Will Never Be Forgotten.
