About Rochester Protectives Co.1

The Rochester Protectives are a volunteer firefighter assistance organization that works with the Rochester Fire Dept. The organization’s mission is to provide both fire and non-fire salvage services to the City of Rochester, N.Y.

Work description:
The Protectives provide assistance to the Rochester City firefighters through the following activities:

  • Covering or removing property
  • Recovering family valuables
  • Providing ventilation through the use of smoke-ejecting fans
  • Set-up of emergency scene lighting

We also perform activities that include pumping water from flooded buildings and securing broken windows and doors.

Our goals have remained the same since our inception and are paramount to our operations. The Protectives motto, We Strive to Save, is our commitment to the residents of Rochester, NY.

The command structure includes a Chief, Deputy Chief, Captain, and five lieutenants. Members volunteer a minimum of 12 hours per week, on one assigned night from 6pm to 6am.
