About the Hyde Park Fire Department

What is now the Hyde Park Fire Department began as two separate companies, Eagle Engine and Rescue Hook and Ladder. These companies were founded in 1845. While these companies shared one building, the Old Firehouse, now home to the Hyde Park Historical Society, and responded together to alarms, they maintained their own identities and rotated the privilege of electing a chief every two years. In 1961 the companies officially merged into one becoming the Hyde Park Fire Department and moving to the current firehouse at 4306 Albany Post Road.

The department today is 29 members strong and answers approximately 500 alarms annually. The members operate an Engine, a Tower Ladder, a Rescue Pumper and a Brush Truck.
