Mutual Aid to Croton

On April 20, 2017 our cascade was requested to the Village of Croton on S. Ledge Loop Road for a working structure fire. Due to the quick efforts of the Croton on Hudson Fire Department the fire was extinguished quickly. We remained on scene for 1 1/2 hours.

Our cascade vehicle (Utility 12) is the only cascade unit designated for that sole purpose in Northern Westchester. We have filled thousands of bottles to date and we are proud to be the first fire department in the State of New York to have a cascade with a compressor mounted on it, providing us the unique capability of "unlimited air". We are equipped to fill SCBA bottles up to 6000 pounds and also possess the capability to fill ladder trucks and SCUBA tanks. If you call us, we will be there.
