The Lander Volunteer Fire Department provides for the public safety of all residents of Farmington Township as well as those that pass through, work in, or attend school here. We provide fire, EMS, and other emergency response services to the area as well as providing aid to our neighboring departments.

Current Projects/Needs:

We fully operational at our station at 5555 Route 957.  With the move complete, our focus is back on truck replacement as that is by far the most expensive part of operating.  We replaced our QRS with a 2022 F-250 last year and we are now looking to our engine.  561 is a 1997 Pierce and is ready to be replaced.  It serves us well, but as it gets older, there will be more and more maintenance costs.  We just applied for a federal grant to help with this – at a price of $895,000.  That is not a fancy piece of apparatus in any way.  This is why we have run older equipment in the past, and unless the grant comes through.

All of your generosity is greatly appreciated and we can’t thank you enough for your support through participation in fund drives, the fair, sportsman bash, chicken bbq’s, and all of our other fundraising activities.”
