Niskayuna Fire District #2 History


The Niskayuna Fire Company was organized in 1942, after a number of serious fires. A group of Home Guards and Air Raid Wardens recognized the need for fire protection in the southeast part of town.

Our first engine was a 1939 Chevy Truck which was converted to a Fire Engine by the members. The first “station” was a barn on Lishakill Road. In 1948 a station was constructed on Rosendale Road, and two new Ford Fire Engines were purchased. In 1953 a station was built on Troy Road, at the site of our current station. By 1992, we had outgrown out two small stations. Construction began on our new station, and we moved in in 1993.

Currently, We have over 45 members, who are all volunteers, and over 20 are trained to provide emergency medical care.

Duty. Honor. Community.
