Fishkill Adding a New Firehouse on Popular Road, Here’s Where
The new firehouse will help better serve and protect one of the Hudson Valley's most rapidly growing areas.
If you live in the Fishkill area of Dutchess County as I did for a few years, you might also be a bit confused as to which fire department is YOUR fire department.

The sign didn't say when construction on the project will begin, or when it is expected to be completed, but when that information is available we will update this article. The new firehouse will be right up the road from Fishkill's newest statute...
