About Us

The Armonk Fire Department was organized in April, 1930, founded by three men: William Taylor, Harry Williams, and Harry Jackson. These three men, returning from a day of clamming in Cos Cob, Connecticut, stopped to assist the Greenwich, Ct. Fire Department extinguish a grass fire. Each man was issued a broom to help put out the fire. After the fire burned out on the Connecticut side , it traveled over to New York after which the Greenwich Company went home leaving three men with the brooms to finish the job. On their way home from the fire, they began discussing the need for a fire department in Armonk.

The armonk Fire Department is comprised of approximatly 60 men and women of the local community who dedicate their time and volunteer for the community. We respond to approximatly 1,000 emergencies in Armonk and surrounding communities.
