Crawfordsville Fire Department

The Crawfordsville Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the City of Crawfordsville and Union Township in Montgomery County Indiana. In addition, the department provides mutual aid assistance and advanced life support intercept services to surrounding departments and communities in west central Indiana.  The department has a long, proud history of service to the community. It was established in 1869 after a major fire destroyed a block of the downtown and several businesses. The department began as a subscription based service known as the “Niagara Fire Company” and was later incorporated into city government, becoming tax supported and municipally controlled. Unfortunately, providing such protection to the community has come at a steep price. Three Crawfordsville firefighters have paid the ultimate price, losing their lives in the line-of-duty. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) was incorporated into the department by the mid 1900’s, and the department became one of the founders of fire service based EMS.  Today the Crawfordsville Fire Department is staffed by 46 firefighters and paramedics. They staff 2 fire stations and utilize 3 “Class A” Engines, an 85’ aerial platform unit, a tanker/pumper truck, a brush truck, a heavy rescue truck, a squad, and 4 advanced life support ambulances. The department also maintains 2 command vehicles and a boat. All personnel are cross trained in firefighting and EMS duties. There are 4 major divisions within the department: fire suppression, emergency medical services, inspection/code enforcement, and training.  The department responds to over 3,000 emergency calls per year, of which approximately 72% involve emergency medical services or rescue. Much time is devoted to public fire education, and approximately 900 fire prevention inspections are completed annually.
