Welcome to LaFayette.

LaFayette Fire Department, Protecting our Community.

The LaFayette Fire Department's mission is to respond to the needs of the citizens of Lafayette in a timely manner through continuing public education, multi-agency and community cooperation, quick response, and a desire to make Lafayette a safer place to live.

The LaFayette Fire Department Inc! Our department has been serving the citizens and guests within the Town of LaFayette since 1945. We protect roughly 5,000 residents in 39 square miles, located just south of the City of Syracuse in Onondaga County, NY. Our district is very diverse, including a large mix of residential, agricultural, commercial, garden apartments, rail lines, and 8 miles of Interstate 81. We are 100% volunteer, with about 50 members staffing 2 fire stations. Our volunteers respond to over 500 calls for service every year. We also provide Advanced Life Support Ambulance Service within the town and surrounding areas. The ambulance (medic-car) is staffed 24 hours a day by part time paid medics.
