Eaton Fire Protection District.
Our mission, is guided by the values of our past; Bravery,
Honor, Compassion and Commitment, which shape the vision
of our future; Prepared, Diligent, Effective and Resilient.
Our Organization was established on January 1st of 1914 as the Farmer’s Fire Protection Association. On November 4th of 1959 the Eaton Fire Protection District was formed. Throughout the years our department has developed to support the growing needs of its 64 square mile coverage area. This area includes a mix of agricultural and industrial regions, including the Town of Eaton and its surrounding communities. EFPD also provides support to emergency response efforts of neighboring Fire Departments and Districts.
EFPD delivers firefighting, hazardous material, rescue, emergency medical services and community support. To best support the service delivery that our community expects, 2023 is the first year that EFPD is a career department with full and part-time paid staff.
Our organization is overseen by a board of publicly elected Directors who work with the Fire Chief and Administrator to support four divisions; Operations, Fire Prevention, Training and Administration.
EFPD’s Apparatus include two engines, a quint, a rescue, type 4 and 6 brush trucks, two tenders, a foam truck, command and support utility vehicles. To provide the best service, our fleet grows with our community.
EFPD’s line crew is staffed by three full time shifts with six members in each and are supplemented by part time staffing.
EFPD operates out of one station with a neighboring administration building and a joint training center.
