The objective of this company shall be to prevent and extinguish fires, to protect life and property, to assist the duly constituted authorities in time of disaster, and to promote fraternalism among its members.
The Armor Volunteer Fire company is located on the Eastern side of the Town of Hamburg, NY, that borders the Town of Orchard Park. We provide fire protection and emergency medical services to a mostly residential area that includes some commercial, light manufacturing and agricultural areas.
The Armor Volunteer Fire Company, as we know it today, originated with the Men's Club of Armor. This club was formed for social & civic betterment of the community. This club served the community as a civil defense unit during World War II. When the war was over they met to see what other ways they could help their community. They appointed a committee to investigate the possibility of starting a fire company for Armor. The Town of Hamburg agreed to the contract and a charter establishing the Armor Volunteer Fire Company was incorporated on May 5, 1944.
In 1945, Armor took its permanent home on Clark Street, then in 1964, the Fire Hall was replaced in a project that took over three years.
In addition to serving the community, The Armor VFC is the Official Protector of “Americas Fair: The Erie County Fair.”
