Mission Statement

The Saint Albans Fire Department will be equipped, trained and dedicated to responding to emergencies within the City of St. Albans. It is our goal to preserve life and protect property to the best of our ability.


The Saint Albans Fire Department has a rich history of serving the Saint Albans community for well over 100 years. A series of large fires devastated the “Main Street” area of the City in the early 1900s, and the citizens responded by forming the Saint Albans Salvage Corps in 1906. Early efforts of the Corps were focused on minimizing loss of property, but as the priority shifted to protect life safety, the Corps was renamed Saint Albans Fire Company 1. Staffing was composed of volunteers early on, but transitioned to full-time personnel in the 1950s.
