About NFD2

The Niskayuna Fire District #2 is the Fire District generally covering Avon Crest, Avon Crest North, Catherine’s Woods, Forest Oaks, Merlin Park, Niska Isle, Birchwood, and the eastern side of Rosendale Estates. Within the District, Niskayuna Fire District #2 is the primary agency, or “first due,” for all fire
suppression, rescues, vehicle accidents, and medical emergencies.

Serving the Community

The Niskayuna Fire Company supports all community and outreach efforts for the Fire District including Fire Prevention Education, Community Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Courses, Community STOP THE BLEED Courses, the New York State Safe Boating Course, Traffic Control for Community Events, and support for Parades and other Community Support.”


The Niskayuna Fire Company was organized in 1942 after several serious fires in the community drew attention to the need for fire protection in the southeast hamlet of the Town of Niskayuna near what is now the border with the Town of Colonie.


The Fire District is led by a Fire Chief who is elected by the active firefighters and confirmed by the Board of Commissioners. The Fire Chief is responsible for all activities within the Fire District. Reporting to the Fire Chief is two Assistant Chiefs, two Captains, and three Lieutenants that provide the organizational leadership for all training and emergency responses.”
