The Knollwood Fire Department was officially dissolved as of October 31, 2018, by a decision of the Rockland Fire Protection District board at the time to outsource services.
Nonetheless, the Knollwood Fire Department has a proud history with traditions of selfless service to the community. Like many volunteer fire departments, KFD was started by the people, for the people, as a grassroots organization. The history of the department is preserved here.
