Schoharie's Engine Company to get new Fire House

Written By Michael on 6/24/15 | 6/24/15

SCHOHARIE - Announcing that FEMA has approved additional funds totaling $6.4 million to rebuild the Niagara Engine Company No. 6 Fire House in Schoharie, U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand praised the rural fire department in a press release issued on Thursday.

“The brave men and women of Niagara Engine Company No. 6 voluntarily put their lives on the line to protect Schoharie County residents from dangerous fires. And for far too long, they were working out of a temporary facility because FEMA put up bureaucratic red tape that prevented them from building a new fire house,” said Senator Schumer.

“Fire stations serve as the nerve center for our first responders to answer emergencies and now Niagara Engine Company No. 6 will be able to consolidate all of its resources and firefighters into one new operational facility to help effectively serve the residents of Schoharie County,” said Senator Gillibrand.

John Wolfe, Chairman of the Schoharie Fire Department Building Committee said, “This project is extremely important to the protection and welfare of the citizens of Schoharie County, and I am excited that we will finally be able to move forward with building the new facility."
