WE SERVE, TO CONSISTENTLY IMPROVE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR COMMUNITY WITH SKILL AND COMPASSION
We operate five fire stations that serve 58,000 people living in 28 square miles. From those fire stations, the Fire Department provides full service, municipal and wildland fire protection, pre-hospital emergency medical response by paramedics and EMT’s, technical rescue services and response to hazardous materials discharges. About 70% of the incidents we respond to each day are medical emergencies and about 8% are fires. Casper Fire-EMS responded to 6600 incidents last year. The Fire Department maintains a highly-trained hazardous materials response. Responding to all counties in central Wyoming for hazardous materials discharge including explosives, poisons, environmentally destructive elements, and weapons of destruction emergencies.
Firefighters face serious hazards, often risking their lives. Whether human-initiated or as the result of some negligent or accidental activity; firefighters seldom know what they will face arriving at an emergency.
Firefighters must provide leadership at every incident; must be highly competent to manage diverse emergencies during the worst of compressed time frames; must be honest and never breach their oath of integrity; must be safe and make it home to their families; and must Be Nice, which is the simplest definition of Customer Service. If any of our fire companies serve you either on an emergent or routine basis, I expect they will treat you well and earn your trust and respect. Trust, us to be there. Pride, for serving the public. Effective, toward reducing loss.
