Mutual Aid

The Village of Massena is located in a very rural section of upstate New York. The closest urban center is one hundred miles away, and the nearest major metropolitan area is a three-hour drive. Massena is one of the largest population centers in our Northern New York area. There are a number of small villages and hamlets in the immediate vicinity. Each of these communities has their own separate fire departments, but because of their size and limited populations, the variety and scope of their apparatus and equipment can be minimal.

Largely due to the rural nature of this area, the Massena Fire Department is often called upon to provide mutual aid to assist with emergencies in these neighboring communities. Our aerial equipment, tanker, engines, specialized tools, and manpower have been used not only in the immediate area, but in the adjacent County of Franklin as well.

Many of these same departments have also reciprocated with response to our community with equipment and manpower during major structure fires and other emergency situations.

This cooperative effort is governed under the auspices of an agreement that was approved by the St. Lawrence County Legislature in April of 1995. We also serve a Mutual Aid Agreement With Franklin County as well. We are automatically dispatched to any fire emergencies at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino in Hogansburg, NY. We continually strive to foster increased cooperation, which will result in better utilization of resources.
