Description & Services
A Message from the Chief 
We are very proud to serve the citizens of Chester and Area in District 3 and 7. With over 30 professional volunteers, we provide emergency services for fire, medical first response, motor vehicle collisions, ice and water rescue, and many other calls for assistance. 
Last year we responded to over 140 emergency calls in our community and assisted with several emergencies in our neighboring communities.  
The safety of our citizens and visitors is of utmost importance to us.  
Our volunteer members would be proud to show you the apparatus and equipment we operate when we respond to an emergency. Give us a call. We would be most willing to show you around the station. 
Perhaps you may have some time to help us and your community. We would really like to see you as part on our team. 
Please be safe.
