In 1922, thirty nine men of the East Bloomfield-Holcomb community gathered together and formed what is now known as the East Bloomfield-Holcomb Fire Department. With the small financial resources available, the Department’s first piece of fire fighting equipment was a hand-drawn, two wheeled cart carrying water and a chemical solution that was mixed at the scene of the fire.

In 1925, a conventional fire truck was purchased and the East Bloomfield-Holcomb Fire Department was on its way into the era of mechanical equipment. Today, the Department has two 1250 gal. per minute pumpers, each carrying 1,000 gallons of water. One 1,000 gal. per minute mini-pumper, one 2,000 gal. tanker truck, and one 4-wheel drive brush truck. Monies for all equipment, minus the ambulances, are provided by the collection of a fire tax through the East Bloomfield-Holcomb Fire District.

The ambulances are owned and operated by the Canandaigua Emergency Squad (CES). There are approximately 75 active members in the Fire Department, all who must stay up to date on the most current fire fighting techniques. The East Bloomfield-Holcomb Fire Department is a total volunteer organization and is in constant need of new volunteers.

East Bloomfield Holcomb Fire Department
Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19 (Corona Virus), effective immediately the East Bloomfield Fire District is postponing all Non-Emergency events and activities at the fire station until further notice. This includes ANY regularly scheduled and one-time events scheduled to be held at the fire station at 105 Main St. East Bloomfield.
These precautions are being implemented to help minimize any potential exposure of COVID-19 to our dedicated volunteers who are already at an increased risk of exposure due to their interaction with the public during emergency operations.  Postponing all non-emergency activities at the station will help our volunteers to remain healthy and available to answer emergency calls in our district.  
We will have further communications when these restrictions are lifted, and normal community use of the fire station can resume.
 
Thank you for your understanding in these new and uncharted times.
 
Sincerely.
 George Heissenberger, Chairman
East Bloomfield Board of Fire Commissioners.
