Defreestville Fire Dept. & Local Agencies Partner to Increase Department Preparedness

The Defreestville Fire Department (DFD) proudly highlights the incorporation of local agencies to their regular training schedule.

Every Tuesday, the DFD holds training exercises preparing members for various situations they may encounter.  On Tuesday, October 23rd, the DFD focused on familiarizing members with heavy vehicles that regularly travel through the district.  The DFD welcomed the participation of the state Division of Military and Naval Affairs (DMNA), the state Department of Transportation (DOT), and Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) all of whom provided commonly used vehicles for members to learn more about.

Brian McCrae, Chief, Defreestville Fire Department said, “Today’s fire service, including our department, has a significant focus on increasing firefighter safety and education is a key component of that effort.  I want to thank the participating agencies for helping us educate our members and the opportunity to get ‘hands-on’ with some of their equipment.”

The Defreestville Fire Department partners with the Wynantskill Fire Department to provide fire suppression, rescue, and first-response emergency medical services for the North Greenbush Fire District.

DFD invites those interested in learning more about volunteering in the fire department to please contact us through either the Facebook page ( defreestvillefd), the website (, or call 518-286-3612.
