To improve the quality of life within the City of Tonawanda by providing up-to-date protection of life and property that meets the needs of the community through timely and prepared response to emergencies caused by fire, medical, hazardous materials, severe weather conditions, and all other natural or man made catastrophe; as well as fire prevention education programs and the use of good code enforcement practices, with the resources provided.   

The City of Tonawanda has joined with Erie County in updating the Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.  Hazard Mitigation is done to reduce the impact of natural and man-made disasters.  Mitigation also reduces the risk of loss and creates a more disaster-resistant and sustainable Community.  Hazard Mitigation measures are essential to breaking the typical disaster cycle of damage, reconstruction and repeated damage.  To view the County’s Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, click on the link below then click on the “Mitigation Plan” tab:      

The City of Tonawanda Fire Department is classified as a “combination” type department meaning that we utilize a combination of both volunteer and career personnel to get the job done. This makes it possible to efficiently provide many types of services for all citizens and maintain a 4-minute or less response time throughout the City of Tonawanda at a minimal cost. The cost to taxpayers for running this department equals a small percentage of the city’s annual operating budget. The City of Tonawanda Fire Department currently operates out of 2 fire stations with Fire Headquarters located at 44 William Street and our substation located at 74 Wheeler St.
