The Lancaster Fire Department provides fire, rescue, and emergency services for the Village of Lancaster and surrounding mutual aid jurisdictions. The LFD provides secondary EMS (Emergency Medical Services) when local ambulance resources are unavailable. The Lancaster Fire Department protects approximately 11,000 residents of the Village of Lancaster. The district is comprised of a mixture of residential, commercial, and industrial properties. Four active rail lines dissect the Village, along with two major state truck routes (Walden Avenue and Broadway). Five elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, nine churches, Como Lake Park, and the Lancaster Opera House call the Village of Lancaster home. Our protection area borders Depew Fire Department to the West, Town Line Volunteer Fire Department to the East, Twin District Volunteer Fire Company to the South, and Bowmansville Volunteer Fire Association to the North.
