Fire Department

Long considered among the elite volunteer fire departments in Ohio, the Martins Ferry Volunteer Fire Department has been protecting the lives and property of our citizens for 125 years.  Four separate stations located strategically throughout the city enable quick responses when the need arises.  These stations are The Liberty (located on Center Street), The Alerts (located on North Zane Highway), The Hook and Ladder (located on South 4th Street), and The Vigilant (located on Pearl Street).

Under the direction of Chief I Jack Regis and Chief II Mike Reese, the fire department continues to add state of the art equipment (including a new truck in 2012) and participates in the latest training procedures to ensure the protection of our citizens.

In addition to their regular duties, members also participate in many civic functions throughout the year.  The sponsorship of the annual Betty Zane Days Festival, High School Spirit Parade and Bonfire, and the Christmas Parade are just a few examples.

Citizens are encouraged to contact the fire department for more information on becoming a Martins Ferry Volunteer Firefighter.

Comment
“The fire department will continue to work to assist the community, citizens, and businesses in any way we can. We are looking forward to the remaining months in 2012 and the community events we will be a part of, including: celebrating our 125th anniversary, and the Christmas Parade. We are also excited about the purchase of a new fire truck that will improve our fleet and continue to keep the insurance rates as low as possible. The fire department would like to thank the community for its support, both past and present.”
