Hot Shots - Coopers Plains-Long Acres Fire Department
This month we feature the Coopers Plains-Long Acres Fire Department. The Department was incorporated in 1953. One truck started it all, a 1936 Ward LaFrance/Ford Pumper, combined with portable pumps provided by locals who wanted to have a fire department.
The fire department building, located at 210 Main Street, Coopers Plains, NY, has five truck bays on ground level, and a second floor which includes a kitchen and community room. The current Fire Chief of this all-volunteer Department is W. Todd Hall. The Coopers Plains-Long Acres Fire Department has 20 current active volunteer members and a Board of Commissioners. The fire district includes all Long Acres and Coopers Plains, which is NYS Route 415 from the Village of Painted Post line to the Campbell Town line. In addition, the district includes Aurene; West Hill Road; Smith Hill Road; and the portions of Beeman Hollow Road, Erwin Hollow Road and King Hill Road in the Town of Erwin.
