The Fire Department has 386 firefighters assigned to 19 stations located throughout the City.
Each station responds to calls within its own response area and may assist in responding to calls within a larger district (there are four districts in the City).
The department's typical response to a reported Structure Fire is three engine companies (smaller trucks), one ladder company (larger trucks), one heavy rescue company and two battalion chiefs. Additional resources may be called in for multiple alarm fires.
Our goal is for the first company to arrive on scene within 5 minutes 90% of the time. Our current average response time is 3 minutes 59 seconds.
