The Fire Department has five fire stations: one in the center of the city and four stations located in each corner area of the city. Our department also has a mutual aid agreement with all bordering communities. We are a combination department with full-time firefighter / paramedics and paid-on-call firefighter / EMTs who provide emergency response, as well as full-time administrative staff who provide additional support.

Full-time firefighter / paramedics are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Paid-on-call personnel are scheduled for EMS service coverage, and provide on-call response to a station for necessary equipment during fire emergencies.

Grilling Safety
It's summer and that means BBQ's. Please review the following guidelines recommended by FEMA to ensure a safe experience:

  • Only use your grill outside.
  • Keep it away from siding and deck rails.
  • Keep a 3-foot safe zone around your grill to keep kids and pets safe.
  • Clean your grill after each use to remove grease, which can start a fire.
  • Place the coals from your grill in a metal can with a lid once they have cooled.
  • Open your gas grill before lighting.
  • Keep an eye on your grill fire pit or patio torches.
