Lyndon Fire and Rescue has over 65 years of tradition serving Lyndon and it’s surrounding communities. Since our inception, consisting of one small building and several committed volunteers, we have grown into one of the busiest fire departments in Jefferson County. We utilize two full time crews strategically placed in two stations. Lyndon is guided by a dedicated board of trustees, and a Fire Chief who is known for innovative fire fighting techniques. Serving beneath Chief Howser are four battalion chiefs, who not only manage the day-to-day operations of the department, but command the majority of the significant incidents in our district. Their job is made easier by an experienced group of captains, sergeants and fire fighters.
Lyndon Fire and Rescue has a comprehensive strategic plan, whereby all aspects of the department, both internal and external, are continuously examined. The strategic planning committee constantly solicits feedback from all types of stakeholders in order to identify and prioritize the strategic issues.
Our strategic plan is more than just a physical document. It is a road map for decision making. This document is strong enough to support our core values, yet flexible enough to adapt to the changes that occur in the fire service.
Our mission statement: Honorable Service For All.
Our core values: Community Centered, Vigilant, Effective, Professional, Proud
Our Vision Statement: Thinking and acting strategically while implementing operational plans should be embraced at all levels of the department. We will continually assess our organization and its impact on the community we serve, in light of our mission, vision and values. We will create an internal environment that embraces innovation, development, fulfillment and improvement. Externally, we shall be recognized in our community as a fire department of honest, disciplined, dedicated and trusted professionals
