The "Station" building



    The Homeville Antique Fire Department started in 1979 with the purchase of the 1927 Brockway truck and has grown over the years to what you see listed above. The apparatus are stored in a 48' x 60' steel building erected in 1994. All the apparatus except the '27 Brockway and the '35 Ward LaFrance are fully equipped and operational. Those two units are undergoing frame up restorations. I offer information, parts, manuals, and paint numbers and other technical assistance to anyone needing such American LaFrance related info. If I do not have it, I can more likely than not, get you in touch with some one who does.
    If you want to visit us we are located in Homer, New York, which is just off interstate route 81 at exit 12. Take the NYS Route 11 off ramp of the exit and turn to the left at the bottom of the ramp onto route 11 North. Take the first left off the exit onto Copeland Avenue. We are less than a block up the street on the right. The driveway is between house # 9 and #11 Please call prior so that I can make arrangements to meet you there, and a good weather day is better because the trucks are "jam packed" into the building.
