About Us

Our Mission Statement: The mission of the Philmont Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 Inc. (PVFC) is to respond to all reported emergencies in the Village of Philmont and throughout the Philmont Fire Protection District; provide assistance to all citizens dealing with natural and man-made emergencies; prudently use available resources at all times, having the utmost regard for the safety of fire personnel of the company; and to work to the best of its abilities with due regard to limit the loss of life, property, and environment.  Following the laws of the State of New York and the United States Of America, the PVFC located in the Village of Philmont, Columbia County shall not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, handicap, national origin, creed and/or religion with regard to membership and personnel matters.  It is the policy of the PVFC to be in full and complete compliance with these laws.  These laws also provide that members should not be subject to harassment on the basis of race, sex, age, handicap, national origin, creed and/or religion.  Again, it is the policy of the PVFC to be in compliance with these laws and to absolutely forbid such events.

The Philmont Volunteer Fire Company No.1, started in 1896 as a Volunteer Fire Company, still operates to this day as a fully volunteer organization.  This does not stop many dedicated men and women from joining.  Over the past few years our roles have multiplied.

We have fully trained firemen in areas of search and rescue, interior attack, ventilation, extrication, fire police, and many other areas.  We have five apparatus that respond to alarms in the Philmont Fire District.  Our main attack truck, 47-20, is responsible for responding to all alarms.  Being able to carry one driver/pump operator, and a crew of seven people; it is usually the first truck to respond and be on scene. Our 47-19 truck is another engine pumper. Only carries a driver/pump operator, and crew of two.  47-19 is BLUE, and though some may consider this an unusual color for a fire truck, all of our members take pride in our blue apparatus. The old 47-1 truck, taken out of service in 2016, was also blue, and served the Philmont Fire Company well through many years.  Next truck on the list is 47-70.  Carries a driver, and crew of two.  This truck holds a lot of important tools, and carries a cascade system to fill air bottles, in the event that our firefighters need such resource. Our fire police vehicle is 47-74.  This apparatus was once used by the Philmont Rescue Squad, and is now our fire police and rehab apparatus.  Fire police have the responsibility of closing off roads in the event an emergency calls for such action.  Rehab is for firefighters who may need to rest.  During rehab all vital signs are monitored, making sure firefighters are in healthy condition to continue their duties.

Our firefighters train on a weekly basis. Drills are used to increase our skills, and make sure we stay ready for the next alarm.  Continuous education is a very important part of the fire company.

Working Together for Home Fire Safety

More than 3,400 Americans die each year in fires and approximately 17,500 are injured. An overwhelming number of fires occur in the home. There are time-tested ways to prevent and survive a fire. It’s not a question of luck. It’s a matter of planning ahead.

Every Home Should Have at Least One Working Smoke Alarm

Buy a smoke alarm at any hardware or discount store. It’s inexpensive protection for you and your family. Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home. A working smoke alarm can double your chances of survival. Test it monthly, keep it free of dust and replace the battery at least once a year. Smoke alarms themselves should be replaced after ten years of service, or as recommended by the manufacturer.

Prevent Electrical Fires

Never overload circuits or extension cords. Do not place cords and wires under rugs, over nails or in high traffic areas. Immediately shut off and unplug appliances that sputter, spark or emit an unusual smell. Have them professionally repaired or replaced.

Use Appliances Wisely

When using appliances follow the manufacturer’s safety precautions. Overheating, unusual smells, shorts and sparks are all warning signs that appliances need to be shut off, then replaced or repaired. Unplug appliances when not in use. Use safety caps to cover all unused outlets, especially if there are small children in the home.

Alternate Heaters

Affordable Home Fire Safety Sprinklers

When home fire sprinklers are used with working smoke alarms, your chances of surviving a fire are greatly increased. Sprinklers are affordable – they can increase property value and lower insurance rates.

Plan Your Escape

Practice an escape plan from every room in the house. Caution everyone to stay low to the floor when escaping from fire and never to open doors that are hot. Select a location where everyone can meet after escaping the house. Get out then call for help.

Caring for Children

Children under five are naturally curious about fire. Many play with matches and lighters. Take the mystery out of fire play by teaching your children that fire is a tool, not a toy.

Caring for Older People

Every year over 1,000 senior citizens die in fires. Many of these fire deaths could have been prevented. Seniors are especially vulnerable because many live alone and can’t respond quickly.
