Our Services
 
 
Fire Suppression/Rescue Operations
 
We respond to fires of multiple origins including house fires, barn fires, brush fires, and the like. We have a team of interior firefighters to provide rescue and fire suppression inside a burning building. Richford also provides mutual aide to fire departments within Tioga County as well as Tompkins, Cortland, and Broome counties. 
 
 
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents make up the majority of our calls. On an average year 80% of the calls in our district are car related. Route 79 and 38 can be extremely hazardous in the winter due to freezing conditions. 
 
HAZMAT Incidents
 
The town is a intersection for major commerce, causing a large amount of hazards to come into our community. Through training and our equipment we are prepared to handle hazardous material calls.
 
Fire Prevention
 
We provide fire prevention and demonstrations to local groups. We have provided our services to the local Girl Scout troop and the Summer Youth Program. If you would like our services please contact us.
 
 
Natural Disasters
 
We are no strangers to flooding. We have aided in flood relief efforts in 2006 and 2011. In 2013 Rt 79W had flooded and most of the hamlet of Richford, causing many roads to be closed for more than 24 hours. We do provide assistants to those who have their basements flooded.
