Stations and Equipment

The Batesburg-Leesville Fire Department is divided into two response districts.  Station 25 in the Leesville District is responsible for the eastern section of town while Station 26 provides primary response for the western end.  Structure responses within the town will see both stations responding while only the closest station may respond to vehicle wrecks, car fires, grass fires, etc.  Each station is equipped to provide fire suppression activities as well as vehicle extrication.  While the department’s brush truck is located at Station 25 and Support Truck 26 is located at Station 26 due to responding primarily in support of residential and commercial structures inside the town limits.  Departmental equipment is numbered per the station it is assigned to.
