About Carman Fire Department

The Carman Fire Department, as we know it, was formally organized in 1933.

The present Carman Fire Department originated in the home of Joseph Reisinger, in 1933, on Second Avenue. Better fire protection was frequently discussed during the weekly card games. Six of the players formally organized the Department.

Many changes happened in the fire service in the late 1980's and 1990's.

Changes at the turn of the century

Fire apparatus were getting larger and wider overall and the many rules adopted by the fire service in relation to reporting requirements and firefighter safety caused a shortage of apparatus parking and office space at our firehouse.
The Carman Fire Department, as we know it, was formally organized in 1933.
