A Letter to the Community
Throughout our 120 years of serving our community, we have kept adapting and improving our service in accordance with the changing needs of Lansing residents and visitors alike. We could never have made these changes without the support of our local government and support from the citizens of our community. It is imperative that our organization work closely with the entire community to meet the needs of the community. Our mission is to serve and protect both life and property of the citizens and visitors of the Village of Lansing.
We currently have 24-hour staffing at three stations with our paid-on-call/full time staff of 42. Automatic and mutual aid with other communities has provided a stronger and more immediate response to help ensure that the finest possible response is provided to our citizens when emergencies arise. We are proud to be part of Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) Division 24.
The Lansing Fire Department provides response to our residents for fire and emergency medical service needs on a 24-hour basis. Additionally, many of our firefighters possess a variety of specialty training so that we may provide the best possible response to any kind of emergency. We have personnel trained in fire investigation, hazardous materials response and mitigation, dive emergencies, and technical rescue. Some personnel are also part of area wide specialty teams that provide these services as part of mutual aid teams with our neighboring communities.
The department also provides other services to our residents, including public education presentations, blood pressure checks at any of our fire stations, and group CPR classes.
Please browse our site pages to see what the Village of Lansing Fire Department is all about and what we do to be prepared to help our community. We hope that your experience is an enjoyable one.
