The five Binghamton Fire Bureau stations are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Bureau has earned a reputation as one of the most progressive fire departments in New York state through:
- Aggressive interior search/rescue and fire attack.
- Standard procedures for organizing firefighting operations.
- Acquisition of state-of-the-art firefighting equipment and techniques.
- An Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program started in 1981 now at transporting ALS/Paramedic level.
