Fire Chief Ted Poszywak

We are a combination department of career and reserve members who deliver fire suppression, emergency medical response and transport, specialty rescue, fire prevention, and community service activities in two of the fastest growing municipalities in the United States.

We are a growing organization dedicated to promoting excellence both in our members and to the citizens we are sworn to protect.

Our officers and members are a highly motivated group of men and women who are devoted to and proud of the communities and people we serve. A symbol of this dedication and pride in both our profession and communities is in our motto: “OFFICIUM, VENRATIO, PIETAS”, which is Latin for “DUTY, HONOR, COMPASSION”.

Our Mission is something we take serious:

“To provide the highest level of life and property protection through; fire suppression, an integrated pre-hospital care system, technical rescue, fire prevention, and public education to all residents and visitors living in and traveling through our District. We are dedicated to always answer every emergency no matter time of day or location with the utmost professionalism and compassion. We stand ready to support and assist neighboring emergency services in accomplishing their missions through coordination and mutual aid response. In accomplishing our mission we recognize our employees and volunteers are our most important asset.”

We would love to hear any suggestions you have both on how to improve our website as well as what services you would like to see from us in the future.
