Dyer Volunteer Fire Department Inc. proudly protects 20,000 people living in an area of 6.2 square miles. We operate out of two stations that protect a primarily residential area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a paid on-call status. We provide fire, medical and rescue service.
The Dyer Fire Department was organized in 1915. We started off with a two-wheeled hose cart, which was purchased for $55.00. It was designed to hold 100 ft of hose and required 4 to 5 men to pull it. We still have the hose cart displayed in the Dyer Historical Society. We have come a long way since 1915. We have 15 pieces of equipment ranging from a 105 ft Aerial Tower, to light and heavy rescue trucks, including two 1500 GPM pumpers. In addition, we also have our 1939 Seagraves Pumper restored to its original condition.
