The Fire Company responds to all types of calls including fire, rescue, and technical rescue emergencies. Staffed with over thirty active firefighters, LFD protects over 9,526 permanent residents within its 60 square-mile district.
The LFD EMS program began in the Spring of 2000. Through this program we provide basic-level EMS response to the residents of our district. We currently work in conjunction with the Lyons Town Ambulance (LTA). The Lyons Fire Department responds to assist on a “first response basis” when the primary duty crew is on another assignment and an LTA back-up crew is being formed or a mutual-aid service is called to respond.
The Rescue Company responds to all incidents involving motor vehicles, industrial accidents, farm incidents, and any haz-mat/decontamination incidents. LFD currently has 2 trucks outfitted with hydraulic rescue tools, a plasma cutter, and other miscellaneous rescue tools.
Technical Rescue Company
The LFD Technical Rescue Company consists of Confined Space Rescue, Water Rescue, Ice Rescue, and Rope Rescue. LFD is currently the only
department in Wayne and Ontario Counties (approximately 1,500 square miles) with an established Confined Space Rescue Team (CSRT). We currently provide this service to several departments and area businesses within the county and adjoining counties on an automated mutual aid system. We have the capabilities to provide a year-to-year contract when it’s required by OSHA.
The LFD – CSRT works hand-in-hand with your local volunteer fire department, and is covered under the Wayne County Mutual Aid Policy. We assist you with site inspections, employee training, subcontractor education and other tasks as they may relate to confined space situations at your facility.
The team responds with all of the necessary equipment needed to perform the rescue in a safe and controlled environment. Our team consists of well trained firefighters that are dedicated to safety and getting the job completed.
If your department or business is interested in this service, please contact Chief Rios.
