Formed in 1922, the Ridge Road Fire District is responsible for providing fire, rescue, and emergency services to the residents and visitors of the southern portion of Greece, New York. We staff three stations, 24 hours per day and 7 days a week to serve our community. Our personnel respond to over 6,000 calls for service annually. These calls include fires, car accidents, emergency medical calls, hazardous materials mitigation, and other rescues.
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.
In 2005, the Ridge Road Fire District became the first fire department in New York State to become accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. We were re-accredited in 2011 and again in 2015. It is through this process that we continually evaluate and improve our services.
