Welcome to the home of the Lansing (NY) Fire Department. We are a 100% volunteer department serving approximately 75 square miles in the northeast of Tompkins County.
Operating from four stations, the Lansing Fire Department responds to all alarms of fire, vehicle accidents, medical emergencies (EMS), hazardous material incidents (HazMat), and hazardous conditions in our response area. In a typical year, we will respond nearly 900-1000 times to calls for help, with a near-even split between EMS and all other calls. Our coverage area is one of the largest in the county, in addition to being one of the most varied. Any day could bring a call to a farm, hotel, shopping mall, regional airport, manufacturing facility, mine, or power plant - in addition to the more common calls to private residences.
In addition to EMS and fire suppression services, the Lansing Fire Department provides public service, fire prevention education, operates an annual fund-raising carnival, and offers meeting space to various non-profit groups in the Lansing area.
We are always looking for new members to join our ranks. If you are interested please go to the Join LFD link on the main menu.
