Fire Department

Wayne Fire Department
Founded in 1938

The organization of the Wayne Fire Department was started in 1938. This was primarily prompted by two very bad house and barn fires in the village. Since that time the Town of Wayne has had a very active and reliable fire department.

We Need Volunteers!

To become a member of the Wayne Fire co. one must be 18 years of age and permanently reside within the Wayne Fire District. A candidate for membership is nominated by the Chief, approved by the Trustees, the Fire Company membership and the Board of Commissioners. The new member is required to perform all duties of a volunteer fireman, including service at the fire scene, attendance of at least six meetings per year, and satisfactory completion of the Essentials Firemanship Course. A one year probationary period is instituted after which approval or disapproval is given. Once the requirements have been fulfilled and approval given the candidate becomes a member.
