What We Do


Our department is a part of Indiana District 10 Emergency Response and we remain on call for all of Southwest Indiana. Our chief is a member of the International Association of Fire Chiefs and a member of the Indiana Fire Chiefs Association and is involved in planning large scale mutual aid assistance and training issues facing the Fire Service and he is a member of Indiana District 10 planning council.

The department will go wherever needed with any requested equipment and manpower at any time. They also have and are actively training with their mutual aid partners regularly to better integrate all of our organizations to work together as one at any emergency.

We have worked closely with all levels of response from local to state to federal at emergencies in the past and have good working relations with all.
