A Message from the Chief

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the New Windsor Fire Department / Quassaick Bridge Fire District website.I am a proud member of this outstanding organization and I feel as excited and lucky to be here as I did when I first joined over 25 years ago.  As you might imagine, I have witnessed many changes in the community and subsequently to this organization over the years, but the one thing that has remained constant is the New Windsor Fire Department’s unwavering dedication and commitment to serving our community. 

As Fire Chief, I have the privilege to serve a great community and work alongside some of the most talented individuals in the Fire Service.   I have watched time and again members of our Fire Department perform heroic deeds and monumental acts of kindness and compassion while, at the same time, never wanting to take the spotlight for such acts.

Our Department’s mission,  “to serve the Quassaick Bridge Fire District with Integrity and Excellence” provides the foundation as we go about our daily responsibilities of providing 24/7 response to all types of emergency and non-emergency calls for service. 

Our promise to the Quassaick Bridge Fire District is that we will strive to maintain our level of legendary service and will always be prepared to respond to your needs day or night with professionalism, compassion, and respect regardless of the situation you may find yourself in. 

As you may know we are 100% volunteer and I encourage the community to be involved with our department. Who knows? You may be our next firefighter.

Thomas McGuinness
Chief of Department
