Organized on February 18th in 1955, Hillcrest fire company has seen its share of changes, challenges and incidents over the last 60 years.
From the cramped humble beginnings at the “Old Hall” to the current four bay digs, the one thing the Hillcrest family has never been short on is its unique sense of family and friendship.
The character of this organization can be traced to those early days when money was short but dedication and sense of duty paid the bills.
From the first fire fought in a hand-me-down pumper, courtesy the Orchard Park Fire Department, to a 2005 American La France with a fully enclosed cab, the solid roots of our past keep us growing healthy today.
It is very possible our Charter Members never heard about let alone ventured onto the internet, but it is for their efforts that current and future members of the Hillcrest family dedicate this web site.
