The primary mission of the Fire department is the protection and preservation of life, property and the environment in the District. This service is provided by a group of 50 dedicated paid-on-call firefighters, 48 full-time firefighters, six chief officers, and three administrative support staff.
The department relies heavily on cross-training and good communication to ensure that the department functions efficiently and effectively. Each of the assistant chiefs assumes responsibility for the operation of the individual Fire Halls. In addition to administrative duties, career officers assume the role of duty chief which involves responding to all serious Fire department emergency calls 24-hours-a-day, on a rotational basis.
The department provides a proactive approach to fire services through the development of multi-year business plans, which include detailed multi-year financial plans.
