LAGRANGE FIRE DEPARTMENT UPDATE |
Fireworks cause an average of almost 18,500 reported fires per year
The LaGrange Fire Department, organized in 1946, protects a 49.51 square mile area in Penobscot County, Maine.
Operations are run out of a single station at 5801 Bennoch Road, which consists of an office and an apparatus bay that stages a Pumper/Tanker, a Tanker, a Rescue and a Brush Truck. The bay doubles as a training area. The current station was built between 1997-1998 under the leadership of Chief Roger Stanley.
The Christmas Angel Tree Program is an annual program. Thank you to all of the volunteers and to those who sponsor our local children. Without all of your help, this program would not have been possible.
