About Us

The Petersburg Fire Department was formed before 1900. We are currently unsure of our exact date but local historians are still working to figure the date out.

At some point during our existence Petersburg Fire Department moved to their old station at the 100 block of Sheridan. In 2002 Petersburg Fire moved out of the old station and into a new station in the 300 block of east Taylor Street. This station provides a kitchen, sleeping quarters, training room, and storage for all equipment.

The Petersburg Fire Department currently provides fire service along with rescue and EMS service to the citizens of Petersburg and mutual aid to several surrounding towns.

The Petersburg Fire Department currently has twenty members who are active with the department, and also hosts a Junior Firefighter program. Sixteen of those members are currently certified firefighter 2 which is the policy of the city of Petersburg. As you can see on our website our members go above and beyond to train at the highest level possible.
