A Message from the Fire Chief
The Kirkland Fire Department’s value to our community is measured by the service we provide. Kirkland citizens receive the best fire, medical, and rescue service possible, twenty-four hours each day, by professional and committed men and women.
The Kirkland Fire Department is a dynamic organization that is always striving for improvement. The 2018 Fire Department Annual Report (pdf 21.5MB) details our current accomplishments and outlines our goals for the future.
We ask that you, too, get involved in reducing risk in our community. You can make a difference if your family is prepared prior to the occurrence of an emergency or disaster: learn first aid and CPR; install smoke detectors; practice EDITH (exit drill in the home); become Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) trained and facilitate a “Map your Neighborhood” project. Together we can make our community a safer place to live and work.
Chief Joseph Sanford
