The Fort Lawn Fire Department began in 1948 when the Town of Fort Lawn purchased their first city truck. In 1962 a Rural County Fire Department was established in the same building to fight fire in the eastern parts of Chester County. A few years after that the two Department were combined as into one department. Today we are responsible for Firefighting and Rescue within the Town of Fort Lawn and Eastern Chester County. We currently have an I.S.O. rating of Class-4 within the Town of Fort Lawn, and a Class-6 for all areas outside of the town that are with in 5 miles of the fire station.
