Fire Buff NY, In Service!



Welcome to Western New York’s newest fire buff website. Here at FBNY we plan on offering up something very different than the fire fighting website’s you’ve been used to. In addition to keeping you up to date on real time incidents in the area we plan on keeping you up to date on local fire department events, training opportunities, happenings and so much more.

Since going online we've added a lot of new sections. Check out our Online Store,  the Training Room, Download Central, Hot Shots Photo Gallery, New Arrivals, our Digital Patch Board, Foreign Fire, Fire Video's, The Truck Room, The Day Room, Scanning and much more!

Plan on visiting frequently to see who’s putting in service the lastest and greatest, not just apparatus but equipment too. Look for informative articles not only on incidents and events in the area but also relevant and interesting articles from local first responders as well. Keep tabs on how you can support not only volunteer fire company fundraisers but also our professional union brothers and sisters, as well as unique agencies such as Mercy Flight, ARC, the Salvation Army canteen, the Buffalo Fire Museum, Niagara Frontier Search & Rescue and others.

We’ll gladly except your incident photo’s, new apparatus; fire station; or equipment photo’s, training dates, fundraising events, or article submissions. So feel free to contact us on Twitter @FBNY_WNY, email at, or via Facebook Messenger.
