A message from our Chief:
For more than 75 years, NFD2 has served the residents of Niskayuna, responding to various emergencies including structure fires, motor vehicle accidents, water rescues and medical calls. Many things have changed over these 75 years, however two things have stood the test of time, allowing NFD2 to fulfill its mission. First is the continued support of our community. Countless generous residents have graciously supported our efforts by donating monetarily, providing funds for the company to purchase equipment and other supplies. Secondly, and most important, the continued dedication and willingness to serve from our volunteers remains just as strong as it was 75 years ago.
Our volunteers continue to sacrifice their time and respond to help their neighbors through the worst day of their lives. The selflessness portrayed by our volunteers makes me proud and humbled to live in this great community and serve as chief. And while you might think it takes a certain skill set to volunteer, just know that we have people from all walks of life who contribute on our scenes and the training is free. In addition to responding to emergencies, our volunteers log countless hours training and educating our residents, most often children. From fire prevention in the schools to our open house, our volunteers help to ensure you and your family knows what to do in case of an emergency. None of this would be possible without the dedication of our volunteers and the support they receive from their families and friends.
While the future remains to be seen, it is my sincere hope that the residents of NFD2 will continue to support this great department, both financially and by volunteering. While we normally welcome visitors, the station is currently closed to the public. If you have any questions, please contact us, via email or telephone, 785-6603.
As always, we are here to answer your call.
Chief Chris Nobes
