About Us

Welcome to Westbrookville Volunteer Fire Company Inc.

The Westbrookville Volunteer Fire Company was formed in 1947 and later incorporated in 1949. Located in New York State, we are part of Sullivan County's Battalion 5. We are dispatched by the Sullivan County 911 Center on 46.10. The County's' main working frequency  is 46.24 and our Battalion Operations frequency is 45.20. Our Station is located at 39 Pine Kill Road in Westbrookville. We provide Fire Protection, Rescue and BLS First Response to the Westbrookville Fire Protection District in the Town of Mamakating.  We cover a very rural residential area. Within our District we have many large undeveloped areas, US Route 209 and New York State Public Recreational Land. Our Company consists of 20 Firefighters and 1 Junior Firefighter. The Company also has an Auxillary which consists of 22 members.

Typically we respond to 70 to 80 emergencies per year. In 2004 we responded to a Company high 110 emergencies. Over the last few years our Company has seen a significant rise in Motor Vehicle Accidents. Wanting to provide better rescue capabilities at MVAs, we purchased our first set of hydraulic rescue tools in 2006. The tools were purchased through a New York State Grant sponsored by Senator John Bonacic. Due to the rural nature of our area, our Firefighters are well trained in Wildland Search and Rescue and we are proud to say our Firefighters have made several successful wildland rescues over the last few years. Being our District borders Orange County, most of our Mutual Aid calls are to Departments in Orange. Due to a good working relationship, being the closest Department to our District and having well trained firefighters the Otisville Fire Company is our first due Mutual Aid Company.

Our Station houses 5 pieces of apparatus. We run 1 Engine/Rescue, 1 Tanker/Engine, 1 Light Rescue, 1 Mini-Pumper, 1 Brush Rig and 1 SUV. The Engine/Rescue was built to run as a stand alone truck with limited manpower until mutual aid arrives. The committee spent a few years designing the truck to suit the conditions of our area. Much time was also spent on building the Tanker/Engine. Due to the small roads in our area, we wanted a Tanker that could maneuver our small roads and driveways easily yet carry enough equipment to operate as an Engine if needed. In August 2009 the Light Rescue was purchased from the Sloatsburg Ambulance Corps. in Rockland County NY. Our Mini-Pumper was purchased from the Burlington Fire Department in NJ. This truck is perfect for accessing houses with small driveways and has seen a lot of work since we purchased it in 2005. The newest to the fleet is the Kubota RTV. The RTV was purchased in September 2007 and has the capabilities for wildfire fire suppression and wildland search and rescue.

Each year our Company along with the Auxiliary run two major fund raising events. The events have been successful for many years due to the continued support of our community. Every Christmas and Easter the Auxiliary has parties for the local children and they are always well attended. Throughout the year the Auxiliary also run various smaller raffles and during good weather the Auxiliary can be seen selling raffle tickets outside the Pine Kill Deli.

Our monthly meeting is on the first Tuesday evening of each month at 8 P.M. Drills are scheduled on various Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings. In 2007 our Firefighters attended more than 300 hours of training. A majority of training is done at our station but last year we attended two New York Sate training classes in Bloomingburg, Firefighter Survival and Accident Victim Extrication. Both classes were given over several days and Firefighters had to pass a rigorous practical exam during the Firefighter Survival class.
