Welcome to the

Fairhope Volunteer Fire Department’s website!

The Fairhope Volunteer Fire Department has been serving Fairhope and the surrounding community for over 75 years. We’re your neighbors, and fellow stake-holders in this community. We do this job because we love Fairhope, the people that live here, and we want to give something back to this community.

All of our firefighters get a minimum of 72 hours of training every year and over 3/4ths of our staff are professionally certified to the firefighter 1 or 2 levels and hold numerous other proffesional certifications in the Fire Service.
