The City of Maple Ridge Fire Department’s Mission Statement is: Protecting Life, Property and the Environment. This work is achieved by a team that consists of dedicated and well-trained firefighters, line officers, administrative support staff and chief officers. 

Fire Services Strategic Plan

The Fire Department is currently developing a Fire Services Strategic Plan that will succeed the 2003 Fire Master Plan and guide the sustainable delivery of essential fire services over the next 15 years. Now until May 22 at 11:59 PM, residents are encouraged to take our survey on Engage Maple Ridge. The results will be considered and incorporated in the draft document to be presented in a Council report and publication in June.
