"I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman.  The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to believe that his is a noble calling.  Our proudest moment is to save lives."

- Chief Edward F Croker

Serving Others



Not everything we do is about putting out fires and rescuing from accidents. Serving our community is what the Whiteland Fire Department is all about and sometimes providing assistance to those in need is just as important as the other things we do. And sometimes it is more important...

Semi Fire


Whiteland Fire Department was dispatched with a possible structure fire at a local truck stop off of I65. While responding this call was updated as a semi-truck on fire near the pumps. Upon arrival of 701 the semi was not near any structures. Engine 71 arrived and made a quick attack with their bumper line. New Whiteland Fire Department Engine 11 was requested for manpower and Needham Community Volunteer Fire Department Engine 82 was requested for water supply and manpower. Seal Medic 23 provided EMS standby for the crews on scene. Whiteland Police Department provided traffic control. No Injuries were reported and the load that the semi was hauling was not damaged and was transported to its destination via another truck. Thank You to all the on scene help as well as Johnson County Communications for your help.
