Amherst Fire District proudly protects 6000 people living in an area of 90 square miles. We operate out of 1 station that protects a primarily rural area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a paid on call status.
Our department was reorganized in 1992 from the combining of three smaller departments. We have worked hard to give our taxpayers a better, more professional service. With ongoing training and a supportive fire commission, we have been making many improvements to our equipment and our organization.
