About Our Fire Department
Proudly serving the communities of Swayzee, Sims, Herbst, and the townships of Liberty, Franklin, and Sims since 1951. The members of our department continually strive to provide the best and most efficient services to our communities. Our department was formed in 1951 and our first station was located on Washington Street next to Armstrong Farm Company. In 1975, the department remodeled two buildings just south of the old station and the members still operate from this station today.
Some of the non-emergency services that we provide are: Fire prevention, Inspections, and general fire safety classes. We will always provide the needed emergency services when called upon, which include: extinguishment of fires, auto extrications, and Hazmat response.
In 1989, department members added rescue service, as well as initiated training for vehicle extrication and various other rescue techniques.
