The North White Plains Fire Company No. 1 is a 100% volunteer fire company serving the North Castle South Fire District 1. The fire company, established in 1912, consists of members from North White Plains, Valhalla, White Plains, and other neighboring communities. Many of the volunteers work and live close in proximity to the firehouse, providing fire protection and emergency response coverage to the community when needed.
The North White Plains Fire Department consists of the two chief officers and firefighters through the fire company. Under the direction of the Chief, the Department is responsible for fire and emergency response operations in the fire district. These operational aspects include fire and emergency response and meeting training requirements.
The Chief and Assistant Chief of the Department are sworn officers of the fire district and are responsible for maintaining constant operation and direction of the Fire Department. When the alarm sounds members of the Fire Company are directed by the Chief of the Department to perform various tasks and duties to aide in the mitigation of an emergency. The connections between the Fire Company, the Fire Department, and the Fire District are necessary to maintain a group of response personnel, maintain operational control, and establish a means of financial support.
The Fire Department responds to an array of emergency calls including various types of fires, motor vehicle accidents and emergency medical assists. In addition to emergency response, the Fire Department holds bi-weekly training drills where crews will review material, practice skills, and run scenarios to improve and maintain their skills in fire protection and emergency response.
The fire company meets twice monthly, on the first and third Tuesday’s of each month to discuss fire company issues and maintain operation of the fire company. The members of the North White Plains Fire Company commit countless hours to serving the North Castle South Fire District #1 in responding to emergencies, training, and maintaining constant operation of the fire company.
