Crystal Fire Department proudly protects 13,070 people living in the City of Saint Marys. We operate out of 2 stations that protect a primarily suburban area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a volunteer status. 

The department is involved with education and training in the community, both its 90 members and the public.

The department works with the other emergency agencies in participating in the prom promise at each of the high school, which alternate every year.

The department continues to train their members and acquaint them with the newer buildings and proper response procedures.
