Fairfield Fire & EMS was created in July 1999 as the result of a merger between the Fairfield Community Fire Company and the Fairfield AmVets Community Ambulance Service. Prior to the merger, the two stations were located directly across the street from one another. Since the merger, all apparatus are now housed in one building and the old ambulance corp building is used as a training center.
The merger has benefited the organization and the community by making it more convenient for the active members to cross-train in both fire and EMS as well as pulling funds and fundraising activities together.
Through this consolidation of funds and fundraising efforts, a new community hall was constructed in 2001 at a cost of $1.1 million. This addition includes a large dining hall, modern kitchen facilities, several new offices, as well as two additional apparatus bays, equipment storage, and a decontamination room.
Currently, Fairfield Fire & EMS operates two BLS ambulances, an engine, a rescue/engine, an engine/tanker, and a brush unit.
