The Auburn Fire Department provides the citizens of our city with many public safety services. In addition to fire suppression, we also offer fire prevention education programs to many groups in our community. These fire prevention programs reach out to business and industry, institutions, schools and target many age groups. Our Fire Inspection duties work together with fire prevention to form the first link of defense against the ravages of fire.
The emergency medical and rescue response we provide has become well known to the residents of Auburn. Each piece of fire apparatus is equipped with basic life support and early defibrillation equipment. Every member of this Fire Department is prepared to deliver highly skilled emergency medical and rescue services whenever they are needed.
When city residents are suddenly confronted with an unexpected emergency, the Fire Department usually represents their only resort in dealing with the situation. Auburn firefighters have made a commitment to education and training to the highest of standards. This helps us respond to and assist citizens facing a true emergency in the most effective manner.
As Chief, I am very proud of the interest and dedication exhibited by the personnel of the Auburn Fire Department. I believe their continued enthusiasm will make this organization one of the finest, most productive and efficient Municipal Fire Departments in New York State.
