The Fire District receives its funding through a fire tax.

The Spencerport Fire District covers the Town of Ogden, the Village of Spencerport and the southern portion of the Town of Parma in Monroe County, New York. Coverage is contracted with the Chili Fire Department for the southeast corner of Ogden and with the Churchville Fire Department for the southwest corner of Ogden. This is due to their fire stations being geographically closer to these areas resulting in a quicker response to emergencies.
