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 Tonawanda. The members of the Ellwood Fire Volunteer Company No.1 are 100% volunteer. The membership 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 338 in 2016, 332 in 2017, 340 in 2018, and 342 in 2019.

Our website contains information about the members, equipment, activities and history of Ellwood. Ellwood is a very dynamic organization and therefore some information may become outdated. Contact us if current information is absolutely required.
