The Fire District is a Geo-political subdivision in the Town of Hamlin. The Board of Fire Commissioners oversees the Fire District. Morton and Walker have their own Fire Districts. Under certain circumstances we will respond to calls in their Fire Districts to aid them as they do the same for us. The Fire District is responsible for maintaining all of the apparatus, the firehouse, and all of the equipment directly associated with providing emergency service to the community (pagers, fire gear, etc.). The Fire District is funded from the Fire Protection Tax paid by residents within the Hamlin Fire District.
The Board of Fire Commissioners is the body that governs the District. There are five commissioners that make up the board, with a chairperson that is one of the five members. This group oversees all money expenditures and handles issues related directly to fire protection service in the District.
