EXPERIENCE:

I have worked for the Village for nearly 30 years, having previously served as Acting Justice and as Village Attorney. I have enjoyed all of the positions I have held in the Village and feel that this background has afforded me the opportunity to really know and understand the Village government and the community it serves.

As part of my job, I am fortunate to work very closely with the Mayor and Board of Trustees, village employees, businesses and residents. We are so lucky to have a municipality where there exists such a strong working relationship between all of these people, who are committed to providing quality service to the community and to making Kenmore a great place to live and work.

HISTORY

 

The Kenmore Fire Department was established in 1903. The original Fire Hall shared space with the Village offices at 2831 Delaware Avenue, near Warren Avenue.  The building was purchased for $2,285 by Jacob B. Rickert.  The first chief was Frank C. Stillwell.

 

The Fire Department moved to its current location on Nash Road in 1929.  This building originally housed both the fire and police departments.  The Kenmore Police Department moved to its current location on  Elmwood Avenue in 1951.

 

A bell, located in the belfry of the Methodist Church served as the original fire alarm for the Village.  In 1904 the Village Board authorized the purchase of its own bell, which sounded alarms until 1917.  This bell is now located at 16 Nash Road as a historic reminder of the Fire Department’s history.  Later an electric alarm system was installed which consisted of twelve boxes located in various sections of the Village.  This system enabled all alarms to sound when any one alarm was activated.  An air blast alarm system was initiated in 1934 and was utilized until 1981.  Kenmore was the first Tonawanda fire department to utilize home receivers.

 

The first equipment consisted of a hand-drawn hose cart and tools.  Most members would run to the fire hall to get their equipment and would then run to the fire.  The first piece of motorized equipment was purchased in 1918.  All equipment was hand drawn until 1919.

 

There have been two firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty to the Kenmore Fire Department.  These men will always be remembered for their service and dedication to this community.

 

Past Chief Chester A. Long – April 9, 1959

Firefighter Timothy M. Goff – May 24, 1997
