Welcome to Elsmere Fire Company A, Inc.

Elsmere Fire Company "A" was formed in June of 1922 through the consistent efforts on the part of a few residents of Elsmere. These residents, interested in protection from fire and decreased insurance rates, formed a volunteer fire company. On November 18, 1922, a special election was held by the Town Board. At this meeting, the citizens voted to create the Fire Company and fund it accordingly. On the first Friday of December, 1922, the Elsmere Fire Company met, organized, adopted a constitution and elected its first officers. This anniversary is still celebrated each year by its current members.

The Fire Company has grown since that date. The active membership is currently authorized for 80 firefighters and social memberships numbering well over 200.
