There are 3 Engine Companies, 1 Ladder Company, 1 Heavy Rescue Company and 3 Ambulances in service every day to serve the citizens and visitors of the city of Vermillion and surrounding communities. Of course, this is only possible because of our staff, we are truly fortunate to have some of the most talented individuals in service as members. Our department is staffed with highly trained Volunteer Firefighters, Part-time EMS Staff and Career Officers. We value the history and the tradition of the Vermillion Fire EMS Department, an organization built upon the strong shoulders of our past that has prepared us for the future. With the continued purpose of serving our community, and the vision to provide a contemporary, dynamic and sustainable fire and emergency medical services, the members of our Department are well suited to lead the way.

We are a vibrant department that values our past, understands the present, and embraces the challenges of the future. We are committed to providing the citizens of Vermillion and surrounding communities with exceptional service. In June 2017, we hired Aaron McDowell in the position of Deputy Fire Chief – EMS.
