The professional firefighters and civilian EMT/Paramedics who staff the Lawrence Fire Department emergency vehicles cover a response area of 22 square miles and serve approximately 48,000 residents. We respond to more than 1,200 fire calls and 5,000 EMS runs on average each year. We strive to have prompt response times as fires double every 60 seconds.
All firefighters are trained to provide emergency medical services, and all front-line fire apparatus, which currently consists of three engine companies and one ladder company – are staffed with Indiana State Certified Paramedics every day. We also have three advanced life support ambulances. Our professional firefighters are highly skilled and trained to conduct difficult rescues, perform auto extrication, and handle hazardous materials incidents with the response of our City’s Tactical Unit, Tac 38 that handles those type of emergency incidents.
