Olcott Fire Company to Get New Fire Engine


Sen. Ortt Secures $130K of State Taxpayer Money for Volunteer Fire Company

The Olcott Fire Company, a volunteer fire department serving the hamlet of Olcott in the Town of Newfane in Niagara County,  pop. 1,241, will replace its 15-year-old fire truck with a new Heavy Duty Response Truck that will allow members to assist with ALS support in neighboring municipalities.

State Senator Rob Ortt (R,C,INorth Tonawanda) secured $130,000 of taxpayer money for the the purchase of the truck.

Ortt, a North Tonawanda Republican, said, “They don’t have a paid department. These guys do the Lord’s work in a lot of ways. They are doing great work. They are out there volunteering their time. They deserve — the residents and the firefighters —  deserve the best equipment they can get.”

The truck is expected to be purchased and in use this year.
