It is the mission of the Ridge Road Fire District to protect the lives and property of the citizens and visitors of the district by providing the highest possible levels of service through fire suppression, rescue, emergency medical care, public education and mitigation of natural and man-made disasters, consistent with the resources provided.
One of four fire districts in the Town of Greece, New York, The Ridge Road Fire District provides fire, rescue, and emergency services in the southern portion of the town. Our stations are staffed 24 hours per day and 7 days a week and we respond to over 6,000 calls for service annually. These calls include fires, car accidents, emergency medical calls, hazardous materials responses, rescues, and other assistance.
In addition to responding to emergencies, we participate in several community outreach and public education programs. These programs allow us to help you help each other and include CPR classes, fire prevention training, and child passenger safety seat inspections. Additionally, we conduct weekly blood pressure screenings at the Mall at Greece Ridge as well as door-to-door smoke alarm visits.
We are here to serve you. When we are not busy providing services, our focus is on improving them. We do this through training, equipment maintenance, and reviewing our practices and procedures. Our crews also conduct over 1,000 fire safety familiarization visits to local businesses each year. These are not compliance inspections, but allow us to better prepare to serve these businesses if an emergency occurs.
