Please help us congratulate Joe Baehr (left) for his completion of NYS BEFOw/Hazmat, Nick Berst (right) for his completion of BEFO w/Hazmat and IFO. Both members took time out of their schedules to complete these courses. The Akron Fire Company is extremely proud of both you and officially welcome to the fire family!!!


Good evening everyone,
We are looking for feedback on our Cash Raffle. We have run 3 of them now and looking to maybe try something new in the fall. What did you like, what didn't you like? We might looking to replace our Fall Cash Raffle with a Fall 50/50 Raffle. We have thrown around the notion and decided to bring it the patrons. It would still be $20 a ticket. The jackpot would be based off of the final total collected. What do you think? Stay with the Cash Raffle or try something new? Looking for your feedback.


Happy Birthday to our Vice President, Bob Wilkinson! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿš’


Today is a day of remembrance. Today is a day that we remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice and laid their lives down so we can be free. All these men and women are true Heroes.


Please help us in wishing Member/Secretary Theresa Roth a very happy birthday!

On Friday May 13, 2022 the Akron Fire Company assisted the Newstead Fire Company with an ECHO response for reports of a person in cardiac arrest in the area of Buell Street and RT 5. The quick response from both fire companies along with a Yorkshire Fire Chief resulted in a positive outcome. The memberโ€™s quick response and training saved a personโ€™s life. On scene members worked together to conduct CPR and 2 shocks with an AED to regain pulses. This person was transported to the Hospital, where they were reported to be breathing on their own. Without the volunteer firefighters from the Akron Fire Company, Newstead Fire Company and Yorkshire Fire Company this outcome could have been different. These members continuously take time out of their busy schedules to do something great. The volunteers train religiously for that moment when their skills are called upon to help someone in need. The Village of Akron, Town of Newstead and Town of Yorkshire should be proud that we have volunteers like this in your districts and their resident should feel safe knowing that they are only a phone call away in their time of need. We would like to thank the following members for their heroic acts that day, 1st Asst Chief David Milks (Akron Fire Co), Director Katherine Murray (Akron Fire Co), Director Darin Crump (Akron Fire Co) and Firefighter Ryan Allen (Akron Fire Co)


Please join us in wishing Firefighter/Past Chief Keith Hawes a very happy birthday!!


Please help us wish firefighter/director Darrin Crump a very Happy Birthday!

The Akron Fire Company is built on a proud tradition of neighbors serving neighbors. Although we applaud the dedication of those who wish to serve in public office, the Akron Fire Company does not endorse candidates.


Help us wish Firefighter Mark Bronisz a very Happy Birthday!!!


Not only does the Akron Fire Company respond to emergencies and protect the village and help surrounding townships, but this year we took a step in helping our youth. The Akron Fire Company is the proud sponsor of the Akron 12u Baseball team. GO AKRON!!!
