Fire Department & EMS

Emergencies: Dial 911

 

Fire Chief: Dale Vanderbur

All three chiefs are residents of Edgewood, as are some of our other members. While most do not live in our little community, our dedicated fire volunteers (some of whom are also state certified EMTs) respond to fires, accidents and medical emergencies. We also provide Mutual Aid to surrounding communities.

Our department operates an engine, a rescue truck, and new to our department in the spring of 2017, a pumper/tanker.

If you need an ambulance, dial 911!

Edgewood Volunteer Fire Department is now operating 2 BLS (Basic Life Support) ambulances. We currently have 9 EMT-Bs members and 2 EMRs (Emergency Medical Responder) cadets, who are ready to assist our community. We also can provide information for public CPR classes and, for those interested, information for EMT and EMR classes.
