Company Profile

We operate out of 2 stations that protect a primarily residential area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a volunteer status.

We are a small company that protects the Angola Village Proper (around 1 square mile), plus the surrounding Angola Fire District. We run 3 Engines including a Ladder Company. Our main rig is our Rescue/Tanker/Pumper. From it we can run Vehicle Extrication, and Structure Attack. We have a full Advanced Life Support Ambulance with a dedicated crew. The EMS squad represents about 90% of our calls. Although our district is small, thereís a lot to do. Main Street is full of old, multiple story structures, and the side roads are full of houses. We also have a few schools within our district and a High-school and Vo-Tech campus on the edge of the district that we protect along with the Evans Center Vol. Fire Co. and the Lake Erie Beach Vol. Fire Co. We also have a good deal of commerce. Right in the middle of the district is Goya Foods and Bison Canning. A few blocks away is The Durrion Filtration Systems building and on the other side of the Village is Flex-0-Vit USA. And of course, we canít forget the rail traffic...but that's another story. The Angola Fire Dept. was also one of the first departments in the state to begin the process of earning New York State Certification in Confined Space Search and Rescue.
