Our Story

Our first year in service we were alerted to 410 calls.

We are under great new leadership and always looking to add to our ranks with new fire certified responders, untrained persons that would like to become certified in Fire/EMS and Active Social members who would like to assist with fundraising.

Please stop by the station for an application or send a message to have one emailed to you. Exciting things are happening in Fairplay and we would like all in our community to help us with that! Stay posted to this page for exciting news and information of fundraising efforts.

Fund Drive

Our sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to our 2022 Fund Drive.

We mailed approximately 2,800 residents and businesses and received an 18% response rate.
We are preparing for our 2023 mailing that will be sent in the spring.  Your donations help us maintain the station and equipment, that we, as volunteers, use to provide emergency services when you need us most.
