The Wintersville Fire Department operates from a single headquarters station located on Luray Drive.  A 33,000 square foot facility.  Large apparatus truck bay area, offices and two social halls.  The main hall decorated for hall rentals through our exclusive caterer Piergallini Catering.  Piergallini is the banquet caterer for our facility, ranging from weddings to graduation parties.  The large hall has seating for 600, it can be split into two smaller banquet halls.  Another smaller more decorated hall seats up to 125.

   The large hall is used two nights a week to operate the departments bingo game.  Currently bingo is held Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Bingo was started by our members in 1975 as a source of fund raising to aid in purchasing equipment and training our members.  The departments fundraising funds are approximately 55% of the budget.  Current economic decline has made the current level of equipment and training, along with staffing for EMS more difficult.  The department is working to meet increased demands for emergency services.

Serving our community since 1944
