Welcome To Slingerlands Fire Rescue

The Slingerlands Fire Department is located in Upstate New York, just south of New York’s capital city of Albany. The Slingerlands Fire District is approximately 5 square miles which includes areas of Slingerlands, Delmar, and the Town of New Scotland. With the current mutual aid agreement the Slingerlands Fire Department responds to neighboring jurisdictions to render both fire and rescue services.

The Department’s primary responsibility has always been fire prevention and fire suppression. We educate through programs that bring us into the schools, as well as allow us to conduct tours at our station.

In 1965 the Slingerlands Rescue Squad was formed. This expanded the Department’s apparatus fleet, necessary equipment that is carried, and response area. Our initial purpose was vehicle extrication, but we have expanded our services to include disentanglement, low angle rope rescue, ice and cold water rescue and elevator rescue. We hope to expand our services even farther as time and need dictate.

The Department is comprised of many different individuals. These individuals live within and around the Slingerlands Fire District. Some of these people are first generation firefighters, others are second and even third generation firefighters. These men and women volunteer their time, at any hour, day or night, leaving their loved ones behind to answer calls for service. These men and women exhibit the utmost professionalism and selflessness when dealing with the most minor or major of incidents.

The Slingerlands Fire Department has proudly served it's community and those surrounding it since 1928. It will continue its service for many years to come.
