Overview of the LJ Fire Department

Currently, we have 26 active operational members and 1 support/auxiliary personnel. LJFD command staff includes the Fire Chief, 1 Assistant Chief, 1 Battalion Chief, 1 Captain and 1 lieutenant. Also included are 2 Sergeants that act as apparatus officers when command staff are not present.
The LJFD is considered an “All Hazards” department. Types of emergencies that we respond to would include, but not limited to, structure fires, vehicle fires, wildland type fires, motor vehicle accidents, rescues of any type, hazardous materials related incidents and High priority medical calls for BLS first response. Our volunteers are all trained to the First Aid level and CPR/AED trained. LJFD also has 1 paramedic, 1 advanced EMT, 4 EMT’s and 1 EMR.
Equipment includes 4 Class A pumpers, 1 light rescue company, 1 brush unit, 1 4000-gallon tanker and a hazmat trailer.
Responses are made by volunteers from our community 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The LJFD operates a “Rapid Response” program by having volunteers stand by at the station 7 days a week to quickly respond to emergencies. Crews stand by Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm, Saturday from 3 pm to midnight and Sunday from 12 pm to 9 pm.
Smoke Detector Program
If you need smoke detectors in your home, please give us a call. We will happily schedule a crew to come by your residence and install them and assist you with an evacuation plan in case of emergencies. LJFD has partnered with the American Red Cross to assist with this program and has been remarkably successful.
