Fire Department Administration
 
>> BACK TO INFO CENTER <<

Responsibility for the overall operation of the Lyndhurst Fire Department falls upon the Fire Chief.
 
The Fire Department consists of three shifts of firefighters. Each shift works a twenty-four hour shift beginning at 8:OOAM each day. A shift is made up of a Shift Captain, Shift Lieutenant, and six firefighters. These shifts work a schedule of 24 hours on duty followed by 48 hours off duty. The station is manned twenty-four hours a day each day of the year including weekends and holidays. This schedule has been in effect since the mid- 1960's.
 
Each shift officer has an area of responsibility such as training, station maintenance, data processing, hose and hydrant maintenance and records, maintaining emergency medical service records and supplies, personnel records, etc. Our secretary, Clarice White, maintains a personnel timeline for the department and also makes sure that inspection reports and other records are entered in the computer system.
 
Correspondence and messages of a specific nature should be directed to the officer in charge of that area. General correspondence and questions about the department should be directed to the Fire Chief.
