WELLINGTON FIRE DISTRICT
Proudly serving since 1881, the Wellington Community Fire District protects the citizens and property of our six communities, by providing professional, courteous, and cost-effective fire prevention, protection, and emergency services.
Since its beginnings in the latter part of the 19th century, the Wellington Community Fire District, then known as the Wellington Fire Department, has grown significantly. The station is now manned a majority of each day, new training requirements emerge annually, and the volume of calls has increased dramatically. Yet it remains important to remember how and why the department was created.
The following is a summary from the September 29, 1939 Wellington Enterprise, of WFD's first fire call, which occurred on January 30, 1881 at around 11 pm; as well as other happenings at that time.
