Welcome to the Neversink Fire Department website.

The NFD provides both Fire and EMS protection to about 1,000 people, covering approximately 50 square miles.  The NFD also provides mutual aid response to the surrounding areas, including Grahamsville, Woodbourne, Liberty, Claryville, Loch Sheldrake, and occasionally mutual aid to Ulster County .

The population can quadruple in the summer time due to visitors in the area.

Pose this question to yourself...
What if you had an emergency and no one came?
This scenario is not a imaginary one! EMS squads around the region have been forced to shut their doors and more are closing their doors during the day throughout the normal Monday through Friday week due to manpower issues.  Relying on surrounding Squads (who are also short on manpower) and the single paid EMS company in the county.
 This puts a strain also not just an issue.
With today's busy life's and families that have 1 or more member working second and third jobs they have little or no time to volunteer.  With less time in our life's for helping others this leaves critical manpower shortages within our communities.  This critical shortage is a potential life threatening issue.  For someone who needs help due to an illness or life threatening emergency, they may have to wait for help to come from an extended distance.
This effects everyone in one way or another. Mostly the person in need of help, but for the family that might suffer the loss of a loved one.

Both EMS & Fire Departments are hurting from a lack of new members.
