The South Wales Fire Company, founded in 1928, currently provides fire protection and emergency medical services to portions of the Town of Wales and Town of Aurora. With a current active membership of 40, the fire company responds to an average of 200 alarms each year.
The South Wales Fire Company has fully trained Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s), Intermediate EMT’s, and Certified First Responders who are equipped to handle all types of Emergency Medical and Rescue calls. In addition, our EMS response is supplemented with a Rural Metro Paramedic backup.
Not only does the South Wales Volunteer Fire Company provide education and emergency services to the community, it is also dedicated to developing a tight-knit community. Each year, the Fire Company hosts two chicken barbeques, one in May, and one in September. In addition, various other events presented by both the Fire Company and the Auxiliary help to bring together members of the community and the Fire Company. These events continue to enhance the exceptional relationship the Fire Company has achieved with the community. We look forward to seeing you at our next event. Check back often for updated news and details about upcoming events!
The members of the Fire Company constantly strive to improve the quality of their services to the community. Progressive training requirements help meet that goal. Annually, the men and women of the South Wales Fire Company attend over 2000 hours of training, not including time spent responding to emergencies.
