About the Greenfield Fire District
The Greenfield Fire District was formed in 1947 when the responsibility of neighboring towns, such as Greenfield and Wilton, grew too great for the Saratoga Springs Fire Department. It was divided into the following four companies: Greenfield Center (Company #1), Porters Corners (Company #2), Middle Grove (Company #3), Maple Avenue (Company #4). You can read more about the district’s history in the history section.
The Greenfield Fire District is run and managed by a Board of Fire Commissioners who are elected by the residents of the fire district. You can find out more about the Board in the Board of Fire Commissioners section.

About this Website
The original website was an initiative lead by the Board of Fire Commissioners to better serve the residents of the Greenfield Fire District. In October of 2006, a committee was formed and chaired by past Commissioner Richard Spackmann.
In 2016 the website was updated to the current version as a collaboration from numerous discussions. District Administrator Joyce Petkus and Director of Purchasing Jill Chouinard oversee the website to keep topics current and information up to date.
