The Harrisburg Community Fire Department (HCFD) is a volunteer organization that serves the city of Harrisburg and the surrounding townships of Dayton, La Valley, Delapre and Springdale. HCFD is allowed 35 members by our by-laws. We regularly conduct interviews based upon the applications submitted to fill our roster. If you are interested in joining the Harrisburg Fire Department please complete an application and submit it to Harrisburg City Hall, the HCFD station or any active member. Additionally, we are proud to have a great group of Honorary Members who have retired from active service after many years of serving our community.
The HCFD is led by eight officers: Fire Chief- Cody Lengkeek, Assistant Chief- Jayme Adrian, 2nd Assistant- Jacob Schroedermeier, Treasurer- Kyle VandenBrink, Medical Captain- Shayne Rose, Safety Captain- Seth Bietz, Training Captain- Austin Hamilton and Secretary- Kyle Hanisch, President Chris Behrens.
As Harrisburg continues to grow, the department has added a President to assist the Fire Chief and lead the administration portion. The President is also the primary contact for any community requests (e.g. tours, business walk-throughs, etc). The HCFD President is Chris Behrens.
In 2019, we also established the Harrisburg Auxiliary for the spouses and families of HCFD active and honorary members.
We have a well qualified group of members serving the community. Firefighter qualifications include: Firefighter 1 and/or 2 and Wildland certification. We also have responders with medical qualifications including: RN, Paramedic, EMT, and First Responder. The department holds two regular meetings each month: a business meeting on the third Tuesday and a training meeting on the fourth Tuesday. HCFD regularly participates in many community events: Harrisburg Days, 4th of July Fireworks, Homecoming Parade, sporting events and department fundraisers.
The HCFD has a fleet of vehicles which includes: a rescue truck, two pumper trucks, two tanker trucks, one wild land truck (for grass fires), an UTV and one support vehicle. Harrisburg Fire Department is grateful for the on-going support of the rural board, local business/public donations and the support of the residents of Harrisburg and the surrounding townships.
HCFD provides automatic mutual aid to Canton, Worthing, Lennox and Tea Fire and Rescue departments.
The community members on this department are here to provide Harrisburg with service in all emergency situations.
In an emergency situation, please dial 911 immediately.
