The members of the Sturgis Volunteer Fire Department serve and protect the community of Sturgis as well as a 580 square-mile area of Meade and Lawrence Counties in South Dakota.
Our response area includes Sturgis, the Fort Meade VA Medical Complex, the historical Fort Meade Recreation Area, Bear Butte State Park, and the northern edge of the Black Hills National Forest.
We serve a primary population of 13,000 and provide mutual aid to more than 25,000 people in Meade and Lawrence Counties.
The Sturgis Volunteer Fire Department, a nonprofit organization, is composed of dedicated volunteers who work hard to ensure the safety of those who live in our response area. The City provides administrative support to the SVFD through an Administrative Assistant. The SVFD also works very closely with the Sturgis Ambulance Service to provide service.
