On January 1,2019 The Lake Winola Fire Co. celebrated the 20 yr. anniversary of the historical merger of the Lake Winola Fire Co. and the Falls Hose Co. This was the first and only merger of two emergency service providers in Wyoming County, to date. With this being the first time for this occur, there were numerous challenges encountered both with the initial merger process and other issues that arose over time once the two companies became one. The merger increased our coverage area. Because of the this, we were able to increase our member count, apparatus, and provide a higher level of training to our members thus, providing a higher level of service and experience to our residents. To date, our members operate and maintain the following: 2 working stations; Station 12 (Lake Winola) and Station 12-2 (Falls), 2 rescue/pumper trucks, 2 tankers, 2 ambulances’, 2 brush truck’s, a rescue boat along with a state of the art air boat. The members of Lake Winola Fire Co. spend countless hours with training and maintaining of the equipment. Through all of the ups and downs we are all part of the same brotherhood and share the common goal of helping our community. We welcome anyone who would like to part of this great organization!
