South Sioux City Fire Rescue

South Sioux City Fire Rescue is rich with history.  The department has been in service for over 100 years.  The building currently housing station one was built by founding members with brick donated by the local community. Housed in station two is a 1934 Ford pumper.  This pumper was a part of the original fleet and is still operational today.  During the summer you probably see it rolling down the road in the many parades.  Along with the historical buildings and equipment, the department boasts a long standing family tradition.  There are many past and current members who have had generations of family members file through the departments ranks.  With the progression of time however, comes the need to progress in abilities, equipment, and practices.  Like so many storied fire departments around the world, South Sioux City Fire Rescue is not immune to this.  October 2016 brought two of the biggest changes to date.  First, a new building is being constructed across the street from station one.  Once completed, it will be the new location of station one and administrative office.  Second, for the first time in its history the department has a full time fire chief.  Two other notable advancements are the hiring of full time staff in 2008 and the advent of paramedic services or Advanced Life Support (ALS) in 2015.  While the departments history has numerous amazing milestones which brought us to this point, the future for South Sioux City Fire Rescue is looking to be just as bright and exciting.
