General Information

The Ellwood Fire District is a political sub-division of the State of New York. It is located in the County of Erie in the Town of TonawandaThe members of the Ellwood Fire Volunteer Company No.1 are 100% volunteer.  The men and equipment of Ellwood protect over 5000 residences and businesses valued at almost $280,000,000 within the District borders.  In addition, the Fire Company protects an industrial area along the Niagara River jointly with other fire companies in the Town of Tonawanda and the Village of Kenmore.

Ellwood responds to all alarms of fire and to other emergency incidents where life or property is in jeopardy.  Medical emergencies in the areas covered by Ellwood are protected by the Town of Tonawanda Paramedic unit and therefore Ellwood does not respond to these incidents.  

Ellwood's  response to  incidents has been increasing the last few years. Our response totals have been  213 in 2001,  225 in 2002,  205 in 2003 and 235 in 2004 and 202 in 2005 and 308 in 2006.
