Community Rallys for Fire Chief Position

In a typical show of small community support, village residents crowded into village hall to show their support for our fire department.  After hearing reports that threaten to remove our village fire chief, residents came out in force to let their feelings known.

Like many small communities Scotia has been looking for ways to reduce taxes without doing away with traditional services. Unfortunately, the current administration has been secretive of their plans having discussions in closed door meetings they call “Executive sessions”.  Thanks to great local media coverage residents are becoming aware of plans and are letting their voices be heard.

Scotia Fire Department

The department was established in 1873 as the Neptune Engine Co. #1. The John Miller Hook and Ladder Co. was added in 1910.   The career staff was first established in 1922. Consolidated in 1986, the Scotia Fire Department, responds to approximately 1500 calls  per year thanks to its 12 paid fire fighters and over 30 volunteers.
