The Montgomery Fire District, created in 1987 after the fire department seperated from the Village, consists of five publicly-elected officials, the Board of Fire Commissioners, each of whom serves a five year term. Much like the volunteer firefighters we work with, we are not paid to serve as Commissioners.
It is our responsibility to provide the necessary apparatus, buildings and equipment needed to assist the Montgomery Fire Rescue Department in the fire and rescue activities that are essential for the protection of life and property within the Montgomery Fire District. It is also our responsibility to operate the Montgomery Fire District in accordance with the laws of the State of New York.

The board meets on a monthly basis, to oversee the operation of the Fire District and to make policies and procedures under which the Fire District and the Fire Department operate.

We remain keenly aware of the fiduciary responsibility we hold in representing the taxpayers within our Fire District.

As Commissioners, we are mandated to follow a strict formula in preparing the budget in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, including specified spending limits. Our process is a public one, and we welcome the input of the residents and taxpayers we represent in the Montgomery Fire District. We, as the board of fire commissioners, meet on the second Monday of each month at 7:30pm at the Montgomery Fire Department located at 136 Ward Street. Utilize the rear station door for entry.
