Our District

PHELPS Fire Department

about our fire department

We are a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization that provides emergency services to a portion of the Town of Phelps, located in Ontario County, NY.


The membership of the department includes firefighters, emergency medical technicians, a Chief, two assistant Chiefs, a Captain, three Lieutenants, a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, and Treasurer. Aside from the day to day operations of the department, there are also volunteers that take care of the fire hall, fundraising, parades, and other community activities.


If you are interested in serving your community by becoming a firefighter and/or an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), please contact us today.  The training and time that it takes to volunteer can be demanding, however it is a great way to serve the community in which you live.

History of the Phelps Fire Department

"Old Ocean no. 1"

The original "Old Ocean No. 1" fire pumper, in service in Phelps, NY from 1864 to 1899, previously owned by the Geneva FD. It was sold to Hingham, MA in 1900 and they used it for parades, shows and musters. It now is in its permanent home at the FDNY Fire Museum in Manhattan.  Photos by Phelps Historian & Oaks Corners FD Member Chris Tiffany.
