"On Time Since 1921"
The Ellwood Volunteer Fire Company has been serving the Town of Tonawanda and surrounding areas since its founding in 1921. This year, we celebrate our department's great history by honoring the traditions and mission of the fire company with a special logo, designed by our own Robert Pohlman. The logo can be seen emblazoned on the front of our hall, on each of our trucks, and on every member's helmet.
We are looking forward to turning the page into a new century of service to the community. With this new website, we hope to expand our community outreach, making it easier to connect and communicate with our neighbors inside and outside our fire district.
