The mission of the volunteers of the Hagerman Fire Department shall be to preserve life and property in the Hagerman Fire District and surrounding areas through mutual aid requests, in case of fire, rescue or any other emergency.
Who Are We:
In the Spring of 1930, five men joined together to form a fire protection company called the Hagerman Fire Department. These men went out and purchased a used 1914 Brockway fire truck that was for sale and started their dream of establishing a fire protection agency.
Many years later in 1953 the department was moved from a small building on Donegan Avenue over to a bigger building at 1309 Montauk Highway. After a 49 year stay, it was decided that a new building was needed and was built at 510 Ralph T. Perry Drive and opened its doors in January of 2002.
Hagerman now responds out of a new "Modern" firehouse equipped with 10 bays and sits on 40 acres of property. Located on the property is several training facilities and the newest addition of a Second Equipment storage building outfitted with 8The property also has a race track for hosting competitions in the New York State Fire Department Drill Team Association and also includes a beautiful Family Park and Department Museum.
