Welcome to the Seattle Fire Department Web Site

We strongly believe in community involvement.  With 33 fire stations located throughout the city, we have a presence in every neighborhood.

Visitor Policy

Our value to the community is measured by the service we can provide.  Every day our firefighters and paramedics strive to provide the best emergency and medical services possible to the citizens of Seattle.

You can learn more about all the services we provide by exploring the Seattle Fire Department Web site.

Fire Department's Mission

The mission of the Seattle Fire Department is to save lives and protect property through emergency medical service, fire and rescue response and fire prevention.  We respond immediately when any member of our community needs help with professional, effective and compassionate service.

Keeping Our Neighborhoods Safe
In addition to our daily protection of life and property, the Seattle Fire Department committed to making Seattle the most prepared city in America. We’re accomplishing this through additional training for our firefighters, Hazardous Materials, Marine and Technical Rescue teams. We have also formed regional partnerships with other fire departments to strengthen resources during an emergency.

Fire Department Strategic Plan - 2012 to 2017

In 2012, Seattle Fire developed a Strategic Plan which serves as a guide and road map for identifying priorities in order to continue delivering excellent fire, rescue, prevention and emergency medical services into the future.  This five-year plan represents our commitment to good stewardship of the department resources funded by Seattle residents.
