Serving with Pride for over 60 years
Welcome to the home of the Fayette Township Fire Department. We are a 100% volunteer suburban/rural fire department located in Lawrence County, Ohio. We serve a population of 9,169 and cover a total of 27.6 square miles. We operate out of two stations, Station 1 is located in the Burlington area and Station 2 is located in the Sunrise areas of Fayette Township, in southern Ohio. We currently run 8 apparatus, 3 engine companies, 2 Rescue companies, 1 Tanker, and several support vehicles. On average we respond to approx. 450-500 calls a year. Recently we have signed an automatic mutual aid agreement with the South Point Fire Department for all emergencies between the two districts.
Our coverage area is primarily residential, however, the past 2 decades have brought much commercial growth to the southern part of the township. We are bordered to the east by the Village of Chesapeake and to the west by the Village of South Point. The Ohio River forms our southern most border.
The volunteers of the Fayette Township Fire Department have been providing assistance to their community with Pride since 1953.
