Joint Fire District
The Big Walnut Joint Fire District is an all volunteer Fire Department serving the citizens of Morrow County, Ohio. We are your family, friends and neighbors who will be there for you in your time of need.
"BWJFD" responds to structure fires, grass and wildfires, auto accidents and responds with Morrow County EMS on emergency medical calls. It covers 75 square miles in south east Morrow County, with 12 miles of Interstate 71, and approximately 6800 residential population.
Our Firefighters are state certified Firefighters, trained in American Heart CPR and First Aid. Many of us are career Firefighters and Paramedics elsewhere in Central Ohio. We are many other occupations such as mechanics, prison guards, police officers, students, etc.
We operate with a fleet of 6 emergency vehicles out of 2 fire stations, Station 39-1 in Marengo and Station 39-2 in Chesterville. Serving the Villages of Marengo, Chesterville, the Townships of Harmony, Bennington and Chester since 1971.
