Hillcrest Volunteer Fire Department Halfmoon Fire District #1 Proudly serving the communities of Halfmoon, Clifton Park and Mechanicville since 1964

Welcome to the website of the Hillcrest Volunteer Fire Department.  
We are located in the town of Halfmoon, New York and proudly serve 
our town and the surrounding communities of southern Saratoga County 
with volunteer fire and EMS protection.

This website is intended to provide department information to members,
along with firehouse activities / announcements / event information
and continuing fire safety education for district residents and the community.



  • As we turn the calendar to 2023, we want to look back at the previous year and summarize the hard work and dedication our Volunteers have provided back to the Community.  In 2022, we responded to 306 emergency calls, broken down into the following categories:
  • Fires (building, vehicle, outdoor) – 15 (4.9%) EMS/Rescue (medical assist, motor vehicle crash, extrication) – 192 (62.75%) Hazardous Condition (gas leak, electrical, power lines) – 9 (2.94%) Service Related (standby, water/flooding) – 13 (4.25%) Good Intent (canceled in-route) – 46 (15.03%) Alarm Activations (smoke, CO, system malfunction) – 31 (10.13%) TOTAL – 306 Calls.
  • Throughout the year, we performed 47 department details, conducted 40 drills/training events and participated in 12 community-related functions, including Fire Safety Programs at the Mechanicville Elementary School, our annual Christmas Santa Run, Halfmoon Trunk or Treat, Kid’s Halloween Party and several community parades and celebrations!  It was a busy year to say the least and we look forward to another successful year in 2023!
  • And most importantly, none of this would have been possible without your support.  Our Annual Fund Drive is extremely important to our operation, as mMonies received during this drive go directly towards meeting our operating and equipment expenses, as well as allowing us to conduct our various community programs and events.  We would like to thank EVERYONE who has contributed to this effort and who continue to support our Department!  THANK YOU… THANK YOU… THANK YOU!
