Always on Duty

Today SRLFD is a combination department with weekday paid firefighters to bolster our response as well as perform building maintenance and the remainder of the time covered by dedicated volunteers as well as in-station night time volunteer crews to provide rapid emergency response at all hours.
This is where you come in. Residents of Loudonville are encouraged to me part of our mission and volunteer today!
