The goal of the Huntsville Fire Department is to aggressively pursue education, training, certifications and the performance of duties that will have an impact of lowering fire deaths, injuries, and property loss, to give our citizens and taxpayers the best fire & rescue protection for their tax dollars. Approximately $30 million tax dollars are spent per year to see that you get the finest protection we can provide as a city. We, at the City of Huntsville, feel that we have one of the finest fire & rescue services in the state.


We, the members of Huntsville Fire & Rescue, are a team of professionals dedicated to providing rapid, reliable emergency services to the citizens of our community. We are committed to saving lives, protecting property, and improving the quality of life for our citizens through education and training, fire prevention, fire suppression, rescue and other emergency / non-emergency activities.

We will accomplish our mission by participating in this community, providing progressive and comprehensive services, and striving to efficiently utilize all our resources to meet the needs of our community.
