Fire Suppression serves to fulfill the mission statement of our department with special emphasis placed on protecting our citizens from harm due to fire, natural or manmade disaster or medical emergencies. When summoned, our firefighters respond from 6 strategically located fire stations, operating six frontline fire pumper/engines, an aerial platform and a medical response vehicle.

The Suppression Division incorporates 78 uniformed personnel who are divided into 3 shifts. Each shift has 11 Firefighters, 7 Driver/ Pumper Operators, 6 Lieutenants, a Captain and a Battalion Chief, who acts as shift supervisor. Additionally, the Battalion Chief directs the department’s initial response to fire alarms, medical emergencies, Haz-Mat incidents or other events. Oversight of day-to-day operations is assigned to the Deputy Chief of Operations.
