History

On January 3, 1901 twenty seven concerned citizens formed the New Hartford Volunteer Fire Department to protect the Village of New Hartford from the ravages of fire. On January 21, 1901 the village board agreed to furnish the fledgling fire department with four rubber coats, six lanterns, furnishing from the hose cart, and acquire a suitable building as a hose house. Permission was given by the Presbyterian Church to use their bell in case of a fire. So started the journey of over 100 years of dedicated service to our community.
