Introducing the Village of Dannemora
Dannemora is a small village in northern New York centrally located in Clinton County.
Permanent settlement in Dannemora began in 1838 and Dannemora was officially incorporated as a village in 1901, growing up around the Clinton Correctional Facility. Clinton Correctional is the largest and third oldest maximum security prison in the state and provides employment opportunities for many people living in our area.
Dannemora is a great place to live in and to raise a family. With a small population, our village provides a safe and friendly atmosphere and we welcome all to our neighborhood. The forests, mountains, and lakes surrounding our region provide great scenery and excellent recreational activities. We are also only a few hours away from Montreal and only a half hour away from Plattsburgh and Lake Champlain so come see what Dannemora and our region has to offer!
FIRE CONTRACT DISTRICT INFORMATION:
On or around November 16, 2020, the Saranac Fire Commissioners verbally informed the Village of Dannemora office that the Saranac Fire Commissioners would be opting out of signing the 2021 fire contract with the Village of Dannemora. This fire contract has been in place since the 1970s.
The fire commissioners said, “with the advent of the modern fire apparatus (which enables fire trucks to come up hills faster), and with the increase in money”, they had decided against renewing the fire contract for the upcoming year. The contract covers January 1-December 31 of each year. When major purchases or repairs are made, a percentage is charged out to the contract districts. The Commissioners did not want to pay the increase of $4,000 for replacing 15 air packs for the Village Fire Department.
On December 31, 2020 fire dispatch still had not been made aware of this change, which would affect the dispatch of the fire departments to the affected areas. The Village notified fire dispatch of the changes and the Saranac Fire Commissioners sent a letter dated Janary 5, 2021 to dispatch confirming the changes.
The former contract areas which were covered and will be affected are as follows:
Hugh Herron Road from the Town of Saranac line south to 97 Hugh Herron Road
Picketts Corners Road from the Village of Dannemora line south to Ducto Road, to include Ryan Road south to Ducto Road.
All of Douglas Road.
State Route 374 east to the Town of Plattsburgh line from approximately south of Maplefield’s Town of Dannemora line to include Kennedy Road, Joanne Lane to the Town of Plattsburgh town line.
The Saranac Fire Department will now be the initial department dispatched for calls in those areas. Dannemora Fire Department will respond as mutual aid, if needed.
If anyone has questions about this, please contact the Saranac Fire Commissioners.
