Limestone County Volunteer Fire Departments

The Limestone County Volunteer Fire Departments provide needed Fire and EMT services to the residents of Limestone County by acting as first responders in many emergency situations. These services are provided through donations, limited appropriations, and a shrinking tobacco tax. The ACTS of Alabama 2008-123, passed by legislation to levy a fire protection service fee for volunteer fire departments, was approved by a majority of qualified electors in the June 3, 2008, Primary Election. Under this law, Limestone County Volunteer Fire Departments gain financial assistance in the form of a monthly fire protection fee of $2.50 from each dwelling and $5.00 from each building in Limestone County, excluding those houses and businesses within the corporate boundaries of the City of Athens. The Limestone County Commission established the Guidelines for Fire Protection Service Fees on October 20, 2008.
