Big Walnut Joint Fire District

At the most basic level, our mission is to “save lives and protect property”. 
 
Our expanded mission is to “provide our residents with fire suppression, disaster mitigation and rescue efforts. We hold the preservation of life as our sworn duty. We will meet and exceed our resident’s needs and expectations; we will achieve this through professionalism, competence, and ethical behavior. We will work within the budget our residents give us and ascribe to be fiscally responsible. We will work in conjunction with our neighboring departments to help them and we will accept their help. We are dedicated to being properly trained. We also promote open communication of ideas and suggestions within our ranks to fulfill this mission”.
 
 
The Big Walnut Joint Fire District is an all volunteer Fire Department serving the citizens of Morrow County, Ohio. We are your family, friends and neighbors who will be there for you in your time of need.
"BWJFD" responds to structure fires, grass and wildfires, auto accidents and responds with Morrow County EMS on emergency medical calls. It covers 75 square miles in south east Morrow County, with 12 miles of Interstate 71, and approximately 6800 residential population.
Our Firefighters are state certified Firefighters, trained in American Heart CPR and First Aid. Many of us are career Firefighters and Paramedics elsewhere in Central Ohio. We are many other occupations such as mechanics, prison guards, police officers, students, etc.
We operate with a fleet of 6 emergency vehicles out of 2 fire stations, Station 39-1 in Marengo and Station 39-2 in Chesterville. Serving the Villages of Marengo, Chesterville, the Townships of Harmony, Bennington and Chester since 1971.
