A plan for the new central Firehouse has bee agreed upon by all parties involved. The building will be built on the Main and Broad Street site. It will no longer extend down Main Street. The building will be about 30,000 square feet and will contain all the areas that are essential to the performance of the Department. As plans become available they will be posted.


April 14, 2015. At 3:59 the Peekskill Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to a reported structure fire at 652 Belden Street. Upon arrival smoke was showing from the 2nd floor of the structure. In order to reach the fire the Department had to hand stretch 550 feet of hose up a long driveway. Because of the location of the structure it was impossible to get an apparatus close to the scene. An additional 500 Feet of 5 inch hose had to be stretched to Engine 131 for a supply line. Approximately 40 members fought the blaze with the Lake Mohegan FD FAST team standing by. Two residents were still in the structure and were led to safety by Captain Mike Sniffen. No civilians were injured although two cats were found dead inside. One Peekskill Career Firefighter suffered a knee injure during the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the City of Peekskill Police and the Westchester County Cause and Origin team.
