Welcome to East Amherst Fire Department

Protecting Residents of East Amherst & Clarence, New York
100% Volunteer Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Our volunteer firefighters also attended 180 training and work detail sessions involving 3208 man hours. These consisted of live fire suppression, water rescue, haz-mat, OSHA safety, pump and ladder operations, vehicle extrication, counter -terrorism operations, and rescue techniques. Also, many firefighters attended emergency medical technician paramedic classes, which consist of 120-150 hours of classroom and field training. The work details consisted of maintenance to vehicles, equipment, and building and grounds. In addition, countless hours were spent on administrative committees and duties. All of this is done to help keep your tax rate as low as possible.


Through careful planning and budgeting, our emergency vehicle fleet is all 13 years old or less and equipped with much of the latest technology and equipment.

We are the only fire company in the towns of Amherst, Clarence, and Newstead providing advanced EMT-Paramedic care 24/7 to its residents, and we can provide this service if requested to our neighboring fire companies. We are partnered with Twin City Ambulance for this paramedic and transportation service.
