Morrow County has 5 fire departments, each with it's own number designation. BWJFD is Station 39. However, since we operate 2 stations, they are known as 39-1 and 39-2.
BWJFD is responsible for the townships within the red boundry.
Fire Station 1 is located at 4600 St. Rt. 229 in Marengo. It is the district headquarters, housing the Fire Chief's office, Prevention offices and the department training room. It has the capacity for accommodating Firefighters for extended periods, with sleeping areas, showers, and a day room with kitchen and living area.
Additionally, Medic 3 of Morrow County Emergency Medical Services is quartered here. These EMTs are here 24/7 to respond to requests for emergency medical assistance.
Fire Station 2 is located at 26 S. Portland St. (Rt. 314) in Chesterville. Formally the Chesterville Fire Department's fire station, BWJFD contracted with Chesterville in 2000 and assumed responsibility for providing fire and rescue services in Chesterville. It has no accommodations for extended stays for Firefighters.
