Our department maintains the highest level of readiness, enabling delivery of firefighting and emergency rescue services in a safe, competent and caring manner. 

Our motto is "We Care," which is evident in not only our mission statement but our life and property-saving actions.

We operate out of a station located at 6 Old Mariaville Road, Schenectady, NY.

The South Schenectady Fire Department is a 100% volunteer organization. With over 80 members, we instill our members with a strong desire to continue the tradition of providing efficient Fire and Emergency services to those who reside or visit within the boundaries of the Town of Rotterdam.

We take pride in knowing that when called upon we have the equipment, knowledge and experience one would expect of a modern fire department. If you find yourself in a "moment of need," the members of The South Schenectady Fire Department will be there to help.
