The First Volunteer Fire Company of Bergholz, Inc.
We recently completed our 100th year of service to the residents of the Town of Wheatfield, NY. One hundred years of pride and professionalism as our members dedicated continuous service to our community and we look forward to the next one hundred years.
If you have thought about volunteering but you don't know where to start, we are here to help. On this site is an application page that you can fill out and submit. One of our first responders would be glad to reach out to you. We are always accepting interior and exterior firefighters, fire police, emergency medical technicians and driver/pump operators. If you have something that would keep you from physically participating but you have a talent that would assist on our administrative side, please let us know. We also have an auxillary that supports our fire company through fund raising and assistance on larger emergencies. You can also contact us at our fire station by calling and leaving a message at 716-731-4848.
