About the St. Albans Fire Department
Preserve Life & Protect Property
The St. Albans Fire Department’s mission is to always be equipped, trained and dedicated to responding to all emergencies within the City of St. Albans. It is our goal to preserve life, protect property and serve our community to the best of our ability.
From Fire We Are Forged
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 St. Albans Salvage Corps were focused on minimizing loss of property, but as priorities shifted to protect the safety of lives, The Salvage Corps was renamed St. Albans Fire Company 1. Staffing was composed of volunteers early on but transitioned to full-time personnel in the 1950s.
We operate out of two fire stations: Central Fire Station (Station 1) is located at the intersection of B Street and Sixth Ave. Highlawn Fire Station (Station 2) is located on Walnut Street, just south of the railroad crossing.
