Honeoye Falls Fire Department
The Honeoye Falls Fire Department was founded back in 1885 by a group of volunteers who signed a list in a drug store. Today it's a little more complex but not much. We get volunteers from all sorts of area's but mostly from references of current members. We appreciate all the help we can get. In a time where volunteers are dwindling faster and faster, those who hang in there and keep volunteering are very useful to us and to them the department is very grateful.
All members of the HFFD have important jobs. Just being a member is important. These are the people who get up at 3:00 in the morning out of a nice warm bed to go help someone else who has called. Then they have to go to work where they are responsible to do the job for which they've been hired. That's dedication. All members at the HFFD are volunteers and do not receive any monetary compensation. They give hundreds of hours a year [each] for free and expect nothing in return. You will not find a better class of people.
The department has two branches. The Operations side and the Corporation side. Operationally we are a department of the Village of Honeoye Falls. In such mode, we are employee's [technically non- pay remember?] of the Village and are responsible to the Board of Trustee's. The members of the HFFD are also incorporated. The Honeoye Falls Fire Department Inc. The members alone make up the corporation and thus have leaders.
Below is a list of the Line Officers, Corporate Officers, and all current active members of the HFFD. The Line Officers are the command staff who are responsible for all HFFD actions and equipment at a scene. The Corporate Officers are the leaders of the corporation and oversee things such as member conduct at corporate events [turkey raffle, gun raffle] and the money donated to us by our residents.
Here is the List of all the people who make the HFFD a great department and who you will see if you have an unfortunate incident where you must call us:
