North Metro Fire Rescue District's Operations Division oversees all the day-to-day operations of the fire department including emergency medical services, emergency response and staffing, a budget and special projects. North Metro firefighters respond to more than 10,000 calls annually, with emergency medical services being the majority of the calls.
In addition, the Operations Division oversees the District's Fleet Maintenance Division. Fleet Maintenance is responsible for over 70 District vehicles, including 10 fire engines, three aerial devices, six ambulances, an aircraft rescue firefighting vehicle (ARFF) and various rescue and support vehicles.
As the number of emergency medical service calls continues to rise, comprising approximately 70% of the fire district’s response needs, North Metro Fire is dedicated to expanding and elevating its medical care services.
The North Metro Fire Rescue District’s Honor Guard was founded in 1995 for the purpose of rendering honors to deceased members of the fire service and for formal presentations of colors during civic and governmental ceremonies.
