A Message from Chief Greg Egloff

Itís no secret that being a member of the East Aurora Fire Department is a major commitment of time. Many hours are spent not only responding to calls but participating in training. We conducted a Total of 64 Drills in 2017 - an average of 5 drills per month and over 1550 man hours!

6 new members joined the department in 2017. Congratulations to those new members who have already competed BEFO/IFO certifications. Completing these courses is no easy task and requires 129 hours of training to become an interior firefighter. This commitment is only the beginning. Training sessions are vital to ensure the safety of our firefighters a nd deliver the highest quality of fire and EMS services to the residents and visitors of the Village of East Aurora and the Town of Aurora.

In addition, in 2017 there were dozens of community and public relations events that firefighters participated in.

On behalf of myself and all the members of the EAFD, we appreciate the steadfast support of the community which we serve!

During my first installation my speech was about preserving our department history while implementing changes to move towards the future of firefighting. This is necessary and critical where equipment is concerned. Our current ladder truck has served EAFD well since 1988. The time has come to replace it. Beginning in late 2016 EAFD and the truck committee have been diligently working on SPECís for a new Ladder Truck. As anyone who has done this before knows itís a long and arduous task. I am happy to announce that we have received bids and are hopeful to have the purchase approved by the village board on Monday.

  • EMS 835
