Local information

Covid 19 and the Cortland Fire Department

Special thanks to all those who donated PPE to the first responders of Cortland County and to the many who have offered support and encouragement as we serve during the health crisis.

During this time the CFD is taking measures to keep community and staff safe. Here is a link we are building to provide information.  We have divided the staff into teams working from 3 sites in the City to limit exposures.  The teams respond in vehicles specifically equipped to manage a potential Covid 19 response.  We are working with the Cortland County emergency operations center to ensure efficient operations in the City of Cortland.  Police, Fire and EMS agencies are working together to provide Cortland citizens efficient care and support.  Please help us by following the current Governer's guidelines, social distancing, hygiene and checking on relatives or neighbors who may need assistance.  Together we can make a difference.

During this time the staff of the Code Enforcement office, Fire Department and Police Department are doing all they can to adhere to the Governor's guidelines and keep the City of Cortland a safe place for all.  This means that there are mandates for acting on gatherings, work, assembly and certain manufacturing to stop the infraction.  Please make yourself aware of the current Executive Orders and your responsibility.  Here is a link to a page for New York State information.  You will find links and abbreviated updates.

A little taste of Cortland Fire

Volunteers in the City of Cortland Fire Department serve in many diverse roles, and use their talents in many aspects of fire department activities. Their commitment to serving the community is what binds the membership, which is comprised of individuals of all ages, experiences and backgrounds. However, because not everyone has a special interest in each aspect of the fire department, our structure allows folks to explore the areas that interest them most.
