Who we are

Our department

-

 

Lewis Township Fire and Rescue provides fire protection and emergency medical services to Lewis Township, and a portion of Garner Township, to the south and east of the city limits of Council Bluffs in southwest Iowa.

 

We provide protection to more than 6,500 residents that live in our district, which covers approximately 35 square miles. Since 2017, we have responded to more than 400 calls every year.

We are volunteers

-

 

Our department is made up completely of volunteers. In the United States, about 70% of firefighters are volunteer and appropriately 85% of departments are all or partially volunteer. These volunteers take time away from their loved-ones and careers to help their neighbors in times of need.
