Lapeer City Fire & Rescue Department serves over 24,000 people living in an area of approximately 100 square miles, encompassing the City of Lapeer, Lapeer Township, Mayfield Township, and portions of Oregon Township. As a participating member of the Lapeer County Mutual Aid Agreement, we also provide/receive automatic aid assistance to/from the townships of Arcadia, Attica, Columbiaville, Deerfield, Elba, and Metamora; with mutual aid to/from the rest of the county as well as two neighboring counties.
We are a combination department staffed by a full time Fire Chief, Fire Marshal, Fire Inspector; one part time firefighter; a volunteer chaplain, and 39 highly dedicated paid on call firefighters and officers. We also have an Administrative Assistant and share a part time receptionist with the Police Department. The department operates out of a single station located in the City of Lapeer with three fire engines, a tender (water tanker), a heavy rescue, a grass truck and an aerial platform/ladder truck. During 2022, the department responded to a total of 506 calls for service. These are all fire or rescue related; medical emergencies in our service area are handled by Lapeer County EMS and MedStar Ambulance.
