What We Do

North Metro Fire is an all hazards response team trained to handle a diverse range of emergencies. In addition to responding to emergencies, the District proactively works with residents and businesses to build a safer community through education, outreach and prevention. Some of the services you and your family can count on include:

Fire District Operations


North Metro Fire responds to incidents such as fires, hazardous materials and technical rescues, but over 70% of the calls our firefighters respond to involve a medical emergency. As a commitment to our citizens, each North Metro Fire engine and ambulance is staffed with a minimum of one paramedic and is fully equipped to handle advanced medical life support. Whether responding to an individual suffering from an ongoing illness or aiding someone in a trauma situation, North Metro Fire paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) are prepared to help.

Fire Prevention Services


North Metro Fire’s Fire Prevention Division works to ensure that all buildings in our community meet the requirements of locally adopted fire codes and hazardous material regulations. The Fire Prevention Division provides technical assistance during the planning, construction and remodeling of structures. Our firefighters also perform regular inspections to help keep our schools, workplaces and public buildings safe.

Community Education and Outreach


Our firefighters not only respond to our District’s emergencies, but along with our fire and life safety education staff, they support our community by helping people of all ages incorporate lifesaving tools and strategies into their day-to-day activities. Some of the free or low-cost fire and life safety programs include:

  • 911 education for youth and seniors
  • CPR instruction and certification
  • Fire extinguisher training for businesses
  • Free blood pressure checks
  • Free car seat inspections for District residents
North Metro Fire also gets involved with the community each year through various events that we support. Many of the events are free and include:

  • 9Health Fair
  • Child Wellness Events
  • Fire Prevention Week
  • National Night Out
  • Senior Day Resource Fair
North Metro Fire is committed to delivering superior service. As our community continues to develop and grow, North Metro Fire will also advance in order to provide the best quality of care and services for our citizens.
