Fire Chief Welcome

On behalf of everyone in the City of Canandaigua Fire Department, let me welcome you to the City of Canandaigua web page.

The City of Canandaigua Fire Department is dedicated to providing quality, timely and professional fire and emergency services to those who live in, work in, and visit the City and Town of Canandaigua as well as the surrounding communities. We have provided this exceptional service for over 200 years and will continue to do so for many years to come.

I have the honor of leading an amazing group of dedicated experienced firefighters whose focus is to provide superior service. We will continue to work hard to achieve the highest levels of preparedness, prevention, quality customer service and community involvement through continuous improvement and training.

We offer professional and efficient fire suppression, emergency medical services, rescue services, emergency preparedness, fire prevention and public education. Career and Volunteer Firefighters protect our community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

As we evolve, our community grows and matures, our mission to protect life and property from fires, accidents, medical emergencies and environmental threats has also transformed to one that is not merely limited to "traditional" fire services but to encompass all threats and hazards to public safety.

Once again, welcome and please contact us if you have any additional questions or have suggestions to improve our services to you.

Thank You,

Frank Magnera, Fire Chief
