New CFD Sign Installed

Over the summer, the Cooperstown FD purchased and installed a new digital sign in front of the Fire Hall.  Our previous sign served us well for nearly 10 years, and allowed us to connect with the community and visitors one message at a time.  

The new sign allows the Department to announce FD and community events and honor the passing of Department members with multiple simultaneous messages - our members were previously changing the message on the old sign very often, sometimes several times per week in all types of weather.

We appreciate Art Calhoun's assistance with the metal framework that was required to mount and install the sign panels, and Kap's Krew Electric for getting us wired in.

We continue to work out some bugs with the sign (adjusting the brightness has been challenging) and we look forward to comments and suggestions from the community.   

To request that your community event or announcement be placed on our sign, please visit our Sign Request Form.  We'll review your request and have an officer get back to you as soon as possible.

Volunteers Needed

We're always recruiting new members for Fire/Rescue, EMS, Fire Police, or other jobs within the FD.   Please visit Contact Us to inquire about joining!
