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. They are an all volunteer department which has been in existence since 1943. They cover a very diverse area covering portions of East Lampeter, West Lampeter, and Lancaster Townships on a first due basis as well as several additional municipalities through mutual and automatic aid. Their 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, numerous factory outlet complexes, a large industrial park, commuter and freight railroad, as well as urban high density housing and farmland all wrapped into a 15 square mile area. They pride themselves 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 their abilities every time.
