Membership Privileges

Membership with Newton Abbott isn’t “all work and no play.”  We enjoy a variety of organized social events, have access to our beautiful grove for certain events, and are entitled to LOSAP benefits.  Some of our events are also community-driven.

Events include:

  • Annual Awards Banquet
  • Family Picnic
  • Firemen’s Day at the Erie County Fair
  • Fire Prevention Details at local schools or public gathering places
  • Halloween Detail in the neighborhoods
  • Annual Food Drive
  • Adult, and Children’s Christmas parties

Additionally, members have access to a well-equipped gymnasium at the fire station, an upper-level outdoor balcony with grill, and a recreation room (with cable HD TV and comfy chairs), with a kitchenette.  It’s not unusual to find a firefighter or three hanging out around the station, going over equipment or just relaxing upstairs.

Active firefighters are also eligible for education benefits, under certain conditions. Read here for a program managed by the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York.
