I'm originally from Binghampton, but have begun volunteering with my local fire department in Montana. I have enjoyed reading about the history of your department, and how far it has come.

I was a member back in the mid-70's. I graduated to driver until I excused myself from the department as I had other avenues to explore in life. I think I was an active member for about 4 years. A member John Gallick sponsored me at the time and his son Mike was also a member when I was; we were like brothers.

Hanging out at the firehouse was great! Good old Walter Androsko (spelling) and his brother Michael. I still to this day don't know how Walter could fall asleep in the chair and snore with the huge wad of chew in his mouth and not swallow it! Hee Hee Hee.

I remember Charlie Moseman. I think he was cheif at the time. But for sure Ray Nicakshere (spelling). When he was chief he would treat us to pizza and we would have contests to see who could eat the hot pizza right out of the oven. That was great.

I also remember Ray Bergan who I think was an officer at the time. Plus all the old timers who used to hang out at the bar in the basement.

Charlie Boatcher (spelling) was also chief at one time I believe back then.

I used to spend just about every minute of every day at the fire house waiting for a call. I loved working the carnival in the back each year.

Hope you guys are doing well. I am retired now at the age of 63 and living in upstate PA. Had a great life and more to continue from here.

The very best to all of you!!

Enjoy looking at your site and very much like the safety tips. Do you visit any schools on a regular basis to teach fire safety? At NY-SAFE we are always interested in seeing different ways fire safety is taught to various age groups.

Hey all!! Can't believe it has been almost 40 years since I was a member there. Loved the time spent with everyone there at the time. I remember a bunch of you guys, don't know how many are still around. Good old Walt Androsko; could not understand how he could fall asleep in the chair snooring away with a big hunk of "chew" in his mouth Hee Hee Hee.

I wish all of you good luck. Over the years I worked in the family business, then an I.T. Analyst and now self-employed electrician ready to retire up in the Poconos in a few years.

Keep up the great work ....

What a beautiful tribute to Fred "Duke" Ducady. He was a wonderful man and the Yorktown Heights Engine Company #1 was his life. Duke was proud to be a 70 year lifetime member and he will truly be missed. We all can learn a lot from his dedication and service.

Searching for Charlie Moseman. We worked at AT&T in Mt. Kisco and White Plains. I had forgotten that he was a firefighter in Yorktown Heights.
My search led to your website and lo and behold - there is retired fire chief Charles Moseman. It would be great if I could get in touch again.

Was proud to have been a Member and miss the action. Your achievements have been tremendous. The biggest thing I remember was getting our 1st. 100' Seagrave under Capt. Joseph Guss Sr. and our Santas ride. Good Luck and keep it safe.

I grew up in Yorktown. My father was William George Downing - one of the first members of the company. My grand-father was Jacob Ehmann - another founding member. If anyone has any old photos of them, please forward copies to my e'mail address. I will share with my brother, William (Bill) Franklin Downing. I will always have wonderful memories of the Fireman's Carnival!

I just wanted to take the opportunity to post a special thank you on the message board to all the Members of the Yorktown Volunteer Fire Department. On Sat. November 19th, I had a food and coat drive that raised over 680 lbs of food in memory of my brother Vincent a Yorktown resident that passed away. We also collected over 23 bags of clothing and coats for men, women and children. Volunteers such as; Kenny, Jeff and Martin helped me by bringing all of my stuff over to the Fire house to store while I distribute over the next 2 weeks. The Food Bank of Westchester benefited from the first donations 11/20/11 and this past Friday Kenny, Jeff and I spent the morning at the Mohegan Manor Adult Home in Mohegan Lake distributing coats and clothing to the residents. They all were amazed at the generosity of the Yorktown community that donated and wanted to send a special "Thank You" to all of the members of the Yorktown Volunteer Fire Department that made the donations possible. Thank you all so very much! I truly appreciate the help. Paula

It's not too late to donate! I still need Adults Coats/Clothing for men and women. It is particulary important to get sizes that are Large, XL and XXL. I will be collecting indefinitely so if you see this, just let Kenny know.

I just wanted to take this time to thank the nice strong young men who helped save the town during all the recent weather-related disasters. If it wasn’t for you brave young men, many people would not be here today. I believe I can speak on behalf of the entire Town of Yorktown that we appreciate everything you do.
