Newbury Volunteer Fire Department

The Newbury Volunteer Fire Department is an all volunteer fire department protecting 25 square miles with approximately 6,000 residents. Newbury Township is mostly a rural area with commercial, industrial, and professional businesses.

The fire station is located on the south side of St. Route 87 just east of Auburn Road. With an 11,700 square foot building, we house 2 advanced life support rescue squads, a pumper/rescue, pumper/tanker, 75' aerial ladder, pickup truck utility vehicle, grass truck, 6x6 Polaris Ranger, and a rescue boat. The building also has offices, a kitchen meeting/training room, locker/gear room, and a dispatch/radio room.

We currently have 21 members who have responded to 291 calls so far this year, and 661 calls in 2014. We provide fire and EMS services to our community. Our members participate in the county wide dive/rescue/recovery team, and the multi-county tanker shuttle program.


Geauga County (Ohio) Residents

Senior Citizens 60 years of age or older, do you need help changing the batteries in your smoke detector???

FirstLight HomeCare will come to your home, remove the old smoke detector batteries and replace them with new (FREE) batteries donated by the Geauga County Department on Aging.

Smoke detectors are typically located on the ceiling or high on the wall, which can present a fall hazard for the elderly when changing batteries.  

Spring Assist is open to the first 100 requests for seniors age 60 and over.

To register for the program, please call FirstLight HomeCare at 440-286-1342 or email to
