The Lafayette Fire Company is located 2 miles east of the City of Lancaster PA and is one of four fire companies which reside in East Lampeter Township which is an ISO Class 4/6 community. We are an all volunteer department which has been in existence since 1943. We cover a very diverse area covering portions of East Lampeter and Lancaster Townships on a first due basis as well as several additional municipalities through mutual and automatic aid. Our first due area is very busy with the local tourist industry and includes unique challenges such as limited access highways, numerous hotels, an amusement park, schools, nursing homes, restaurants, numerous factory outlet complexes, a large industrial park, commuter and freight railroad, apartment complexes as well as urban high density housing and farmland all wrapped into a 15 square mile area. Waterways covered include the Conestoga River and the Mill Creek. We pride ourselves on having a well maintained fleet of well equipped apparatus and a strong base of active members who ensure that all calls for service are answered to the best of our abilities every time.
