Milan, NY - Dutchess County
The Milan Volunteer Fire Department is a fire protection district founded in 1947. Covering 49 square miles, we provide Fire and EMS services to the Town of Milan and portions of the towns of Gallatin and Clermont. Our response area includes approximately 10 miles of the Taconic State Parkway and no operating fire hydrants meaning members draft from static water sources to put out fires! We have approximately 45 motivated and dedicated volunteers who serve as firefighters, EMTs, drivers, and fire police officers.

Originally two bays with 10 foot doors, the station became too small. Unable to house new apparatus, the roof was raised 2 feet to accommodate 12 foot doors and a third bay was added in 2011.

Station functions as the headquarters of the Rescue Squad. This station has under gone additions twice. The station was first built in the 1960's on land donated by Henry Wyant, a local resident. A bay was added to the north side of the building in 1975 to allow room for an ambulance to be housed after the creation of the rescue squad. In 1991, the two bays on the south side of the building were added to accommodate for additional apparatus and space for training.
