About the Fire Department
 

Our Mission Statement


The members of the Lincoln Fire Department serve the community and citizens of Lincoln by protecting life, property, and the environment while being courteous, respectful, and safe in the performance of their duties.



The Lincoln Fire Department came into existence in 1896 with the formation of Lincoln Hose Company #1.  Like nearly all organized fire services of that time, it was made up of volunteers from the community.  Lincoln’s volunteer fire service continued to evolve and existed as the source of fire protection to the community for many years.  However, due to the rapid growth of the city and increased demand for services, the Fire Department began employing full time staffing in October of 2001 to better meet the needs of the growing community.

Today the Lincoln Fire Department strives to maintain a minimum of six personnel on shift every day. The Department covers roughly 20 square miles with a population of approximately 45,000 residents from its three stations located throughout the city.

The Lincoln Fire Department responds to various emergency and non-emergency incidents including, but not limited to, all types of fire; medical emergencies; public assists and hazardous situations. Lincoln Fire Department call volume has more than tripled since 2001 from 980 calls for service; to 3,612 calls for service in 2013. 

Firefighters complete a minimum of 20 hours of training each month. All personnel have a variety of advanced training in areas such as hazardous materials, swift water rescue, fire investigation, and training.  The Lincoln Fire Department also participates in county wide training such as wild-land fire training, mass casualty incidents, structural fire drills, firefighter rescue and many others.
