The Montgomery Fire Department Fire Police Squad
THE FIRE POLICE SQUAD
The Fire Police Squad's main duty is to protect Montgomery's Bravest and the emergency scene while they are hard at work. The Fire Police members are often used at the scenes of motor vehicle accidents as traffic control, to protect our firefighters from inattentive drivers. The Fire Police also act as crowd control at large scale incidents such as structure fires and mass casualty incidents.
FP-225 is the Fire Police Squad's primary apparatus. FP-225 is a 2007 Chevy Suburban equipped with a rear sliding tray. The rear tray allows for easy access to cones, flares, barricades, and road signs that are used in traffic control operations. FP-225 responds to every alarm to assist in scene safety and traffic control.
Every member wishing to join the Fire Police Squad is required to take the New York State Fire Police class, which totals 21 hours. After this class, and upon acceptance into the squad, members are sworn in at the Town Court as New York State Peace Officers.
The Fire Police Squad holds their monthly meetings on the last Thursday of each month at 7:30pm at the fire station.
