WELCOME TO EXCELSIOR FIRE ENGINE COMPANY ESTABLISHED 1912

 THE EXCELSIOR FIRE ENGINE COMPANY OF PEARL RIVER, NEW YORK WAS FOUNDED IN 1912 AS A NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATION WITH A 
MISSION OF PROVIDING VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS TO THE PEARL RIVER FIRE DISTRICT. TOGETHER WITH THE PEARL RIVER HOOK & LADDER COMPANY
WE COMPRISE THE PEARL RIVER FIRE DEPARTMENT ( ROCKLANDE COUNTY DEPARTMENT 12 ). OUR FIREHOUSE IS LOCATED AT 1 MICHAEL KERNAN DRIVE
( AT THE INTERSECTION OF ROUTE 304 AND HILLSIDE AVE )   IN PEARL RIVER, ROCLAND COUNTY,NEW YORK. THIS BUILDING WAS CONSTRUCTED IN 1968
TO REPLACE THE MUCH SMALLER FIREHOUSE THAT HAD BEEN IN USE SINCE THE INCEPTION OF THE COMPANY. THE OFFICES AND MEETING ROOM OF THE
BOARD OF FIRE COMMISSIONERS OF THE PEARL RIVER FIRE DISTRICT ARE ALSO HOUSED IN OUR BUILDING. TODAY WE HAVE IN EXCESS OF 70 ACTIVE
MEMBERS WHO HAVE BEEN EXTENSIVELY TRAINED IN THE LATEST FIREFIGHTING AND RESCUE TECHNIQUES. OUR DISTINCTIVE YELLOW AND WHITE FIRE
APPARATUS INCLUDES TWO PUMPERS, A HEAVY RESCUE TRUCK THAT INCLUDES THE "JAWS OF LIFE" TOOLS, A SMALL MOTOR BOAT AND A PATROL/
