On January 29, 2016 the Fireboat E.M. Cotter Conservancy, Inc. was formed. The Conservancy is a collaboration of the Fire Bell Club of Buffalo, the Buffalo Fire Historical Museum, Firefighters Local 282 Union and the WNY Retired Firefighters. It is our mission to promote and support the Buffalo Fire Department Fireboat Cotter which is in need of some costly repairs: new propellers, shafts, engine overhaul and hull repairs.
The Conservancy hopes to fund $25,000.00 per year to maintain “above the waterline upkeep” for the E.M. Cotter.
The Conservancy is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax exempt corporation and all donations are tax deductible. Our Tax ID is #81-1265898.
