In existence for over 140 years, the Fresno Fire Department meets its challenges by virtue of its cohesive core values: “Teamwork, Trust, and Commitment.” There are an extraordinary pride and resiliency in the Fresno Fire family; all are motivated by a servant’s heart, fortifying and serving their community.
With a firefighting force of 298 sworn personnel, the FFD enjoys a reputation for being hard working, fast moving, and dedicated to education and progressive training of its members. The mission statement of the FFD is: To protect and put service above all else” and a strong sense of duty and commitment is needed to be a part of the FFD team. You will “fight a lot of fire” in Fresno where the community demands the most from their firefighters; but know fighting fires is not all you will do, as this profession involves so much more! Over 45,000 times each year our men and women respond to emergencies, with over 70 percent of those being medical in nature.
As the Fire Chief, one of my responsibilities is to cultivate the best in our members so I ask you to join us at Fresno Fire – your legacy awaits you here!
