Welcome to the Saratoga County Firematic Officer's web site.

Congratulations to the Charlton Fire Department.  It has been a long process but it paid off.  Charlton Fire Department recently moved into their new facility.

50 Years of Service

Captain Colby Krogh recognized Jay Bargovic on October 5th for his 50 years of service with Eagle-Matt Lee Fire Company.  Thank You Jay for your 50 years of dedicated service.

Jay held various positions throughout the years.  Jay also served as Deputy Fire Coordinator for Saratoga County.

The Saratoga County Fire Advisory Board meeting  on Monday, October 26th has been cancelled.  We will post new date, time and how to access meeting virtually.

A note from the State Fire Chief's Association.

This is the first time the NYSAFC conference has been canceled since 1917 and 1918, when it was called off due to World War I. More than a century later, our event continues to grow and thrive, so we know we will make it to the other side of this pandemic stronger. Although we're all disappointed that FIRE 2020 has been canceled, the Annual Conference & FIRE Expo will be back, bigger and better than ever in Syracuse from June 16-19, 2021. Registration will be opening soon. We look forward to seeing you there! Until then, stay safe and healthy.

Annual Dinner Meeting

The Board of Directors met prior to the August Association meeting and have decided that the annual dinner meeting traditionally held in December will not be this year.  Due to COVID 19 and its uncertainty this winter season we feel it is in the best interest of everyone's safety.

The Association will however hold a meeting on Friday, December 11, 2020 at 7 PM.  The meeting will be held at the Galway Fire House on West Street, Galway.

South Glens Falls Fire Department is in the process of obtaining pricing to have the sign at the County Fire Training Center refurbished.

Along with having the sign refurbished, the project team would like to have new landscaping placed.

With the potential of a new training building to be built, it would be a nice fit to have the sign refurbished with new landscaping welcoming all to the Byron Baker Fire Training Center.

Estimated cost for this project is between $3,000 and $ 4,000.  A great portion of this is for the sign. 


Donations are being sought to help cover the projected costs.  If your agency is interested in helping, you may send donations to the South Glens Falls Fire Company, 7 W. Marion Ave., South Glens Falls, NY  12803.

Check payable to South Glens Falls Fire Company, memo: Fire Training Center Sign.



Rest In Peace
