The Findlay Fire Department is committed to providing the highest level of service to our community in all times of disaster.
Our mission is accomplished by the dedication and preparedness of professional firefighters through fire suppression, rescue response, emergency medical service, fire prevention, life safety education and disaster mitigation.
The Findlay Fire Department (FFD) provides primary emergency response to the City of Findlay, Ohio and, through mutual aid agreements, to the surrounding townships and villages in Hancock County and to other nearby cities. The emergency operations carried out by the department include fire suppression, emergency medical service, hazardous materials—operations level, rescue, and response to natural disasters. On the non-emergency side, the FFD Fire Prevention Bureau provides public fire safety education, fire code enforcement, and fire investigation services.
Administration of the department is carried out by the Fire Chief, the Deputy Fire Chief, and a civilian Administrative Assistant. Training for FFD members is accomplished through a combination of department in-service and formal classes, off-site training institutions, and an Ohio-approved apprenticeship program. The department’s equipment and apparatus is maintained and repaired by a full-time contract mechanic, operating from one of the four fire stations located throughout the City of Findlay.
Candidates for employment with the Findlay Fire Department are subject to the requirements of the Findlay Civil Service Commission.
