Fire Department

Services Provided

Today, response to EMS and Fire emergencies represents only a fraction of the total activities of the fire department. Functions such as, fire safety inspections, public education, building plan review, community outreach, and fire prevention have become the foundations of the new fire service. Other areas of involvement now include technical rescue, hazardous material response, and emergency and disaster preparedness.
