The West Lafayette Fire Department operates from three stations.
Fire Station No. 1
Station 1 is located at 300 North Street, near the Purdue University campus. It was built in 1917, making it one of Indiana's oldest active fire stations and formerly housed city hall and other city offices. It is also one of a few stations in Indiana with a fire pole.
The exterior walls of this unique structure are 14" thick, solid brick and limestone masonry that is highly resistant to tornado and other high wind damage. The second floor living area was extensively remodeled in 2006 and 2007 by the firefighters. In 2008, the exterior masonry mortar was patched, a chimney was re-mortared from the roof line up, and the roof was re-shingled.
Fire Station No. 2
Station 2 is located at 531 Navajo Street and can house two trucks and six firefighters.
Fire Station No. 3Station 3 is located at 1100 West Kalberer Road. This new state-of-the-art fire station station opened in December 2012 and provides the citizens of West Lafayette with better and more efficient service. The Purdue Research Foundation donated the land on which Station 3 sits.
