Engine 4 - 1950 Ward LaFrance 750 gpm/300 gal.

After faithfully serving New York Mills for over 30 years, this classic piece was retired in the 1980’s. Featuring a standard transmission requiring a tricky “double clutch”, the rig is equipped with a booster tank filler cap on the tailboard allowing the tank to be filled by a bucket brigade. When in service, it carried 200’ of booster hose, 200’ of 1-1/2” & 700’ of 2-1/2” attack line. Retired for well over 20 years, Old Engine 4 now handles parade duty as well as being Santa’s sleigh during the annual Santa run.

New York Mills Fire Department

Organized in 1931, New York Mills provides Fire, Rescue & ALS level first response protection to a 47 square mile area encompassing the Village of New York Mills as well as portions of the Towns of New Hartford & Whitestown. Twenty five active volunteers operating from one station answer an average of 800 alarms annually. An interesting fact about New York Mills is that it is THE only village in New York State with “New York” in its’ name  - post 9/11, the department was deluged with cards & posters from well wishers from across the country who had done internet searches for the “New York Fire Department” and found the New York MILLS Fire Department (which is located about 250 miles north of New York City)!!
