Bargersville Community Fire Protection District stretches for miles north, south, east and west of the fire department’s original home in the Town of Bargersville.
While Bargersville Community Fire Department retains its roots to the town, the fire protection district’s boundaries reach far beyond the town’s limits.
For decades, BCFD has provided fire protection and emergency medical services to residents and visitors from historic Hopewell, west of Franklin, along Ind. 144 and County Road 144 to near Waverly, and Ind. 37. And BCFD responds to emergencies as far north as Center Grove near Greenwood along Stones Crossing Road south to just north of Trafalgar at Ind. 44.
All the residential and farm communities within the 64 square miles of the fire protection district benefit from the more than 50 years of preparation by BCFD’s firefighters.
Countless calls for help have been answered by BCFD firefighters and paramedics throughout the years from sick and injured people to traffic accidents and burning structures. And the calls are increasing rapidly as urban sprawl approaches with increasing population and visitors.
Whether it’s a farm accident, schoolyard injury or sports-related accident at Center Grove High School or soccer, junior football, baseball or band practice field, BCFD’s members are thrust into the spotlight. Often, BCFD staffs events with personnel to ensure prompt service.
Each year during Bargersville’s September town festival, BCFD joins in the fun with free games and events for children. And the Santa Train visit to Bargersville each December is embraced as visitors from several counties travel to town.
With two elementary schools – Maple Grove and Union, and Center Grove High School, with Johnson County’s largest enrollment – BCFD prepares age-appropriate fire safety programs for students.
The list of BCFD’s efforts to promote community safety through education and training is endless.
BCFD is proud to be a part of each community within the fire district and is expanding its role as a leader in public safety and neighborhood issues.
Take the opportunity to visit one of BCFD’s stations – Station 1 at 89 S. Baldwin Street, in Bargersville, or Station 2, 5886 West Smokey Row Road.
