Fire Department

The Lowell Volunteer Fire Department was organized in 1897 by a group of citizens to protect their own property and businesses as well as others. The first meeting was held October 5, 1897 with the first appointed Chief being M.E. Nafus. On November 2, 1897, Charles Sherard was the first elected Chief. He served in that position until June 7, 1898. In the past 122 years, there have been only 22 Chiefs.

The Lowell Volunteer Fire Department, Inc is still growing and progressing each year to provide the people of our community the best in protection.
