Welcome to the new youngstownfire.com…

Welcome to the new youngstownfire.com. Since its founding in 1998, this site has been dedicated to the men and women of the Youngstown Fire Department past and present. It is my hope that this new format for the site will make it easier to share information on the YFD and its history. Your input and additions are always welcome, look for the "On the Box" logo on the right or email us at webmaster@youngstownfire.com.
