The Lordstown Fire Department, chartered in April 1946, is now celebrating over 70 years of protecting life, limb, and property. The Department began serving the community with a single fire engine, responding out of a central fire station located in the same spot where the current station is situated, at 1595 Salt Springs Road. The Department began with a 1947 International pumper with a 600-gallon tank. This truck was restored between May 2003 and September 2004 at an approximate cost of $21,000. It utilizes a 500 GPM Hale Pump and a Maxim engine. If you would like to read the article published in the Tribune Chronicle, our local newspaper, on January 6, 2005, please click the link below.
On April 1, 2017, we began staffing our department 24/7, with two EMT/Paramedics and our current Fire Chief, Travis Eastham. We have a staff consisting of a full time Fire Chief, (as of January 1, 2021) an Assistant Fire Chief, 3 Captains, 3, Lieutenants, and 44 Firefighters, (which includes 31 Firefighter-EMT/Paramedics).
The Lordstown Fire Department currently operates out of one central station and proudly serves a population of approximately 3,300 people. The Fleet pictured above consists of 2 Engines, 1 Tanker, 1 Ladder-Tower, 1 Heavy Rescue, 2 ALS Ambulances, 2 Brush units, and 1 Suburban for transporting personnel and equipment. In conjunction with complete fire hydrant coverage, the entire Village of Lordstown carries an ISO rating of 4.
