Responses

 Lander VFD Response Order

The Lander Volunteer Fire Department is set up through Warren County Dispatch for automatic run orders for various calls.  Based on the physical location of an incident in the township, the responding units may change (mutual aid units), but Lander units should be the same throughout the township.  These areas are the basic 4 quadrants of the township plus a separate response area for Eisenhower that includes a lot more units on a first response.

The following is a listing of the typical responses that you will see for various calls in Farmington Township.  These are general guidelines and can be changed based on weather conditions, officer orders, or other circumstances.
