Message from
the Chief

Fighting fires is a very important task, but a modern fire department does much more
than that.

During a typical year, for example, nearly 87 percent of the calls handled by our department are for emergency medical service.

We also rescue people who are victims of all kinds of accidents and we are prepared to help victims of natural and man-made disasters.

The fire department is responsible for saving lives and protecting property. We deal with fires, explosions, accidents, medical emergencies, toxic materials and a variety of other threats-often under extreme circumstances.

Because of this, our firefighter/paramedics train constantly to keep up-to-date with changes in equipment, technology and techniques.

Please look through our web pages. You'll find a variety of useful information about safety, fire prevention and medical emergencies.

We are proud to serve our city and we appreciate the support we receive from our community. If you have any questions about fire safety, or any other questions involving the fire department, please give us a call.


Sincerely,
Briant Galgas
Fire Chief
