Thurman Fire Company, Inc

To report a fire, dial 911.

The Thurman Volunteer Fire Company was organized by a group of local volunteers, who built the firehouse in 1955. It has been a growing organization within the community since then, helping to prevent loss of life and property during fire and other hazardous conditions. The organization also works toward public safety awareness and holds monthly drills. The fire company meets on the first Tuesday of each month at the firehouse, 368 Athol Road, Athol. The meetings are open to the public. The group welcomes new members. Applications are approved by the membership and successful applicants must complete a basic firefighting course within one year.


Thurman has several programs in place to help residents with special needs.

Senior Citizens’ Bus

A bus is available one day each week to pick up Thurman senior citizens at their homes and transport them to the Glens Falls area to do their errands and shopping. There is no charge for this service.
