Sheridan Fire District

Sheridan Fire Department began in 1886 as part of the city of Sheridan. It served a population of approximately 200 people and about forty square miles, including the city of Sheridan and the farming community around it. As the city has grown and the surrounding area has become more populated, the Fire Department transitioned from a city department to a special district, not limited by city boundaries, becoming a separate entity from the city altogether.

Today we serve and protect a population of over 10,000 people, not including the thousands of people a day who travel through our district. Sheridan Fire District now covers 145 square miles of forest land, farmland, and the communities of Sheridan, Buell, and Ballston.


Sheridan Fire District uses the Public Fire Safety system to improve communications and public safety by coordinating burn permits and regulations in partnership with Sheridan Fire District community members.
