The mission of the Fire Department is to provide the residents, businesses, and visitors of Fountain Hills with the highest level of protection against loss of life and property. We uphold the commitment through quality emergency services and a proactive emphasis on public education, code enforcement, hazard investigation, innovative life and safety awareness, and community service; while maintaining the highest level of professionalism in all aspects of rescue, emergency medical service, fire prevention and suppression, and control of hazardous situations.
The Fountain Hills Rural Metro Fire Department is made up of a dynamic body of men and women who work to ensure the safety of Fountain Hills' residents. While the Town owns the equipment and firehouses, the Town of Fountain Hills contracts with Rural-Metro for the personnel. This relationship has proven cost-effective and provided seamless service to residents in Fountain Hills. The Fire Department is lead by Fire Chief Dave Ott.
