The Corning Fire Department, established on November 1, 1896, is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition to fire suppression we provide the following services:
Fire Investigation Unit
In 1985 the Corning Fire Department officially organized the Fire Investigation Unit, with its primary responsibility being to determine the cause and origin of all fires occurring in the City.
Fire safety and prevention programs are offered regularly employees of businesses and institutions. Programs are presented both on-site and at Fire Department Facilities. School safety programs are tailored appropriate age groups and are designed to follow students through their education. The Fire Department has a Fire Related Youth Program with specially trained Fire Department personnel to work with children who have been involved in the cause of fire. Often, the program deals with issues involving fire play and a child's curiosity with fire.
On-Scene Basic Life Support
The Corning Fire department is a Certified First Responder Unit and is trained and equipped to provide on-scene basic life support. All personnel are certified by the State of New York as Emergency Medical Technicians or certified First Responders.
Commercial Building Inspections
The Fire Department assists the Code Enforcement Office with inspections of commercial buildings.
The Fire Department also responds to many non-fire related emergencies such as: vehicle accident victim extrication; water rescue; hazardous materials accidents; confined space rescue; rope rescue; and carbon monoxide emergencies.
