    The Fire Department began as the Independent Hope, Hook and Ladder Company volunteer department in  the late 1800's and became a full-time, paid department in 1962 with one engine and driver. Today the Bay St. Louis Fire Department is a professional fire and rescue service with  23 members.

The department now has three custom built pumpers, a rescue unit, and a service/salvage unit.   The newest custom pumper has the capacity to pump 1750 gallons of water per minute and second unit capacity is 1500 gallons per minute.  The rescue unit has been upgraded to a rescue/mini pumper unit that has the capacity to pump 300 gallons of water per minute. A ladder truck is in the the plans for the near future.

All personnel are nationally registered as 1001 Firefighter and 1002 Apparatus Driver/Pump Operator. Various personnel have national registry as Fire Officer,  Fire Safety Inspector, Fire Investigator, Fire Service Instructor, Hazard Materials Technician, Rope Rescue Technician, Emergency Medical Technician, and SCUBA Dive/Rescue Specialist 1 and NAUI  Instructor.

We have a rating of Class 6  from the Mississippi Insurance Rating Bureau.  Our goal is to achieve a Class 5 by the year 2000. This department receives it's funding from the city.  We have a mutual aid agreement with all Mississippi Gulf Coast Fire Departments and  AMR ambulance


This site is dedicated to the firefighters of Bay Saint Louis,their families and to those who are no longer with the department but gave their all while they were here. 


The citizens of Bay St. Louis need to know how well trained and experienced their department is in meeting their needs and protecting their investments in the community.
