AboutKeene Valley Hose and Ladder Company No.1, Inc. is located within the Town of Keene in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks region. Less formally known as Keene Valley Fire Department, or KVFD, we provide fire protection, advanced life support EMS, and backcountry rescue to those who live and visit our community.
Founded in 1908, KVFD is a focal point of the community. Every August we hold our annual "Fireman's Field Day", a favorite event among the community. The field day is best known for its BBQ chicken dinner and highly competitive horseshoe tournament.
Our members are all volunteer, responding to calls at any hour; day or night. They manage training and calls, meetings and drills, all on their own time.
Along with our sister company Keene Fire Department, we help to keep the Town of Keene safe.
