The official Eastchester Fire District website address has been changed to eastchesternyfd.gov. The old website address eastchesterfd.com will redirect visitors to the new website address, so either website address will work. Eventually, the email addresses for the employees may become @eastchesternyfd.gov, but for now, all employee email addresses remain @eastchesterfd.com.
Why did the EFD move to a .gov address?:: Multiple confirmation types are used to ensure that .gov domains are ONLY available to governments. Anyone can register a .com or .org domain for a fee. This is not so with .gov domains, which allow for increased security. The public shouldn’t have to guess whether the site they are on is official.
What does this mean for the community and staff?: All your saved links and the EastchesterFD.com email addresses will continue working. You will be forwarded to the EastchesterNYFD.gov domain when visiting the old address, but the content will remain the same.
