The Loxley Volunteer Fire Department has 25 adult members and 2 explorers from 14 to 17 years old. The explorer program allows a student to get involved, train, and be part of the excitement that comes with helping people. They are not allowed to fight fires or operate the Jaws of Life.
Many of the citizens of Loxley do not realize that we have two fire stations. Station two was built outside the gate of Steelewood subdivision. This station is a three bay facility that holds a fire engine, a service truck and a brush truck.
The Loxley Volunteer Fire Department responds to approximately 425 calls per year in the Loxley area. The fire department depends on the availability of its members to adequately perform its mission. There are times, however, specifically during the work day, that the department has a difficult time having firefighters respond to fires. The department is looking for additional firefighters to help the cause. If you or someone you know would like to contribute to the public good, enjoy a camaraderie rarely seen outside public service groups, walk a level of excitement only tempered by the phenomenal training, and participate in something that is considered one of the finest hobbies in the world, give us a call or stop by the Fire Station on Thursday nights, our training night, and we will sign you up.
Our officers for 2016 are Fire Chief Raymond Lovell, Deputy Fire Chief Ed Vaughn, Batt. Fire Chief Gavin Fells, Lieutenant Will Ervin, Lieutenant Greg Lindell and Lieutenant Jonathan Hobaugh.
In case of an emergency and to report a fire, call 911.
If there is no emergency and you need to speak to someone about fire services during business hours, call the Fire Department at (251) 964-5696. If you need to, leave a message and a representative will get back to you.
