At an inaugural dinner held on February 2, 1932, Utica Fire Department’s foremost friend and benefactor, Dr. Fred J. Douglas, founded Engine Eleven, Inc and became its first chief. Since then, we’ve supported the fire department in their endeavors to help keep our friends and neighbors safe.
Our organization is composed of doctors, lawyers, clerks, politicians, blue-collar workers and other professionals who have united to uphold the fine traditions of fire service in Utica. Our mission is to:
Being a firefighter is a difficult and dangerous occupation. They don’t always get the thanks or recognition they deserve, even though they do so much for us. That’s why we host various events throughout the year so the community can show their support and gratitude to such an important group of people and their noble work.
Our organization relies solely on membership dues and donations to provide continued support and educational opportunities for the Utica Fire Department.
