Our mission is to enhance the quality of life and the environment through the professional delivery of all-hazards emergency response, community education, and inspection services.
In general, the perception of the Fire Department centers on fire engines and firefighters performing their daily duties. The reality however is that the fire service has changed dramatically over the past thirty years and much of the daily activity occurs "behind the scenes."
In order to respond quickly, efficiently and effectively, the firefighters rely on a dedicated support staff in the Administration Division to provide the means to serve our community.
The Administrative Division is responsible for the management and supervision of all department services, programs and policies. This entails managing the budget to provide equipment and training, hiring new personnel, payroll records and reporting, purchasing, inventory control, computer related functions and training, labor relations and clerical support services.
The administrative staff also ensures that the firefighters basic needs are met and coordinates medical care and other support services.
The Fire Department has one chief, one assistant chief, one fire marshal, one EMS coordinator, and four battalion chiefs leading the agency.
The Operations Divisions is comprised of six fire stations and strives to maintain an average response time of five minutes to emergencies within the City.
We're looking for men and women who are interested in an all-hazards fire-agency and family environment.
