Welcome to the Rhinebeck Fire Department website!
We hope you find our site interesting as you learn about who we are.
The Rhinebeck Fire Department was founded in 1834 and has been an active fire department ever since. We are located in the beautiful and historic village of Rhinebeck, NY, situated in Dutchess County in the picturesque Hudson Valley region of New York State. Rhinebeck is home to the Dutchess County Fair, Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, and many historic buildings such as the Beekman Arms.
Our primary response area is about 30 square miles and our response area has a population approximating 7500 residents in both the Village of Rhinebeck and the Town of Rhinebeck, with the Town being a mostly rural area. We have approximately 50 motivated and dedicated volunteers who serve as firefighters, EMTs, drivers, and fire police.
