Crawfordsville Fire Department

Welcome to the Crawfordsville Fire Department website. 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. Four 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.

It is the mission of the Crawfordsville Fire Department to preserve life and property to our citizens, provide professional and compassionate service, promote public safety and foster economic growth through leadership, management and actions, as an all risk life safety response provider

The goal of Mayor Barton and our department is to provide a safe community for families and business to grow.
