Founded in 1935, located in the hamlet of Rapids in the Town of Lockport in Niagara County, NY. Rapids Vol. Fire Co. is a nonprofit volunteer fire company fortunate enough to have two fire stations. Our main hall is located at 7195 Plank Rd. where our banquet and training facilities are located and our Station 2 is located at 6131 Old Beattie Rd. With 60 active members Rapids responds to over 900 combined EMS and Fire calls per year. We not only serve Niagara County, but a small portion of Erie county as well. We protect portions of three towns including Lockport, Royalton, and Clarence.
Our current fleet consists of two Advanced Life Support Certified Ambulances, one Utility Vehicle, three Pumpers: two of which are rescue-pumpers with light towers and jaw of life equipt, a Grass Truck, and a Medium Rescue Vehicle with a walk in command post, the majority of our cold water rescue equipment and yet another set of Jaws of Life. All of this gives us the best opportunities to serve our communities in which ever aspect they may need assistance.
