On behalf of the members of the City of Batavia Fire Department, allow me to welcome you to our department's web page. It is our hope that this information will provide you with a preview of our Department and the services offered while inviting you to consider the City of Batavia for your residential, commercial and recreational needs.

The Department is comprised of 38 dedicated, motivated and highly trained emergency services professionals, serving the citizens of the City of Batavia, New York and all those who work, visit or travel through our community.  We serve more than 15,000 residents and visitors and have done so for over 100 years. 

The City of Batavia Fire Department is responsible for providing skilled fire, rescue, emergency medical and preparedness services. Additionally, our members conduct fire prevention, public education and inspection activities. We accomplish this through consummate preparation, education and training utilizing the most current technology and methodologies.

Our mission statement truly reflects our guiding principles that drives the men and women of this department. These professionals are more than public servants, they are active and engaged members of the community.

Again, I appreciate the opportunity to introduce our department and welcome you to the City of Batavia. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have. It is our pleasure to be of assistance.

Thank You, 

Stefano (Steve) Napolitano
