As a resident in the Lyndon Fire Protection District, you are protected by the finest department in Jefferson County. Your fire department has received a Class 2 rating from the Insurance Service organization (ISO) The ISO rates fire departments on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the lowest level of protection.
In our district, we serve over 50,000 residents in 14 square miles. The population practically doubles during the day, due largely in part to the rapid commercial/office growth we’ve experienced over the last few years.
We operate one engine company and one ladder company out of two stations. Our volunteer fire corps members operate an incident rehab unit to assist at major incidents. Our headquarters station is located at 8126 New Lagrange Road, and our Station #2 is located at 8414 Westport Road.
Lyndon Fire is staffed by career personnel that are on duty 24 hours a day at both stations to ensure an immediate response to any emergency. Our career staff is supplemented by a corps of volunteer “fire corps” members who provide additional support whenever the need arises. In addition to fire suppression and emergency medical calls, our staff also provides administration, training, fire inspections, public education, maintenance and other duties.
Lyndon Fire responded to more than 1,100 calls for service last year, and we anticipate this number will rise this year. These calls included fires, rescues, auto accidents, hazardous materials spills, weather related emergencies and mutual aid services to neighboring fire districts. Lyndon Fire also responds with Louisville Metro EMS to provide emergency medical care prior to ambulance arrival. Our entire staff are emergency medical technicians that utilize state-of-the-art equipment that is carried on the fire apparatus.
As stated above, we provide many public relations and fire prevention services. These services range from fire safety lectures to firehouse tours and more. For more information regarding these additional services, please visit our Fire Prevention page.
