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.
