The Wymore Fire Department was organized ten years after the town of Wymore was established. On May 1, 1891, a meeting was held with C.S. Seymour elected Chief of the department. At that time, the first fire hall was a wooden building, which had been a livery stable in earlier years. When the first fire hall burned to the ground in the early 1900's the department moved to what was left of the old Wymore Opera House building.
In 1964, the department got into the emergency rescue business. They also started working towards a new fire station. By 1970, firemen had a total of $45,000 and decided to construct a fire hall. Work continued through 1971 on the new fire station. Firemen moved their equipment into the new station in January 1972.
Currently, the department has 2 pumper trucks, a 1,500 gallon tanker, 2 4-wheel drive pickups, grass rigs, one equipment truck and 2 ambulances. The department currently has 30 members with 15 member EMT's.
