Allen County MARCS
All law enforcement in Allen County (except Delphos PD) is now operating on MARCS.
All fire departments and EMS agencies (except Delphos FD) is now operating on MARCS.
- Lima FD (154.220) - 339.6 / 321.7
Lima Fire Stations and Response
- Station 1 (Central) 433 S. Main St. C-12, E-1, R-1, M-1, M-2, L-1
- Station 2 Third and Branson E-2
- Station 3 West and Robb E-3
- Station 4 Spring and Judkins E-4 (Station Closed)
- Station 5 Elm and Shawnee E-5 (Station Closed)
All engines cover an approximately 1.5 mile driving distance (ISO) territory around their stations for single company responses. The exception is in the west end of Lima where, because of the closing of Station 4, this area is not within the 1.5 mile service area. Basically E1 is the middle of Lima, E3 is north and E2 is south.
First alarm response:
Effective June 1, 2010 the Lima Fire Department's minimum manning was reduced to 14. Also effective on that date, all apparatus responds to first alarm structure fires. The safety officer position has been eliminated. On September 6, 2013, MedCorp closed down operations in Lima. On September 9, 2013, the Lima Fire Department increased manning to 16 and placed a second medic unit in service to cover the increased need for emergency medical transport vehicles. This now gives Lima four medic units (two from LFD, two from LACP) to provide transportation services in Lima.
During the M-F 0700-1530 times there are two fire inspectors (C-13 and C-14) who can also respond and perform support duties as needed by the IC. One of them is called in on third alarms, the other at fourth alarm.
The fire investigator (C-17) works M-F 0700-1530 and investigates fires at the request of the IC. He gets called in quite frequently after hours.
The fire chief (C-10) works M-F 0700-1530 and doesn't respond to fires until the third alarm.
