Our Mission Statement 

The City of Huntington Fire Department works safely and diligently to protect lives and property of the people of our city from fire and other hazards.

We utilize our available resources to deliver the highest possible quality of service through fire suppression, fire prevention, public education, rescue services and mitigation of the effects of natural and manmade disasters.

We are committed to excellence and must work hard to train and prepare for our duties. We strive to keep ourselves safe, fit and alert while limiting the loss of life and property resulting from fire, manmade/environmental disasters and other hazards.

Our professional conduct and appearance enhance a valued relationship with the citizens we serve. Our apparatus, buildings, equipment and supplies are the tools we use to accomplish our important mission and are treated with care and respect.

A response ready posture is our goal at all times. The lives and property of the people of our city are dependent upon our performance. We are The City of Huntington Fire Department.

The Huntington Fire Department also responds to calls that are considered non-emergency calls – customer assistance, interdepartmental assistance, water line breaks, among others, to assist in life safety and/or property loss.

We strive to effectively and efficiently utilize all of the resources at our disposal to provide an excellent service to our citizens, businesses and visitors. Our members believe in conducting ourselves in a disciplined manner with sincerity, honesty, dedication and pride.

The pursuit of excellence and commitment to public service is of paramount importance, as the lives and property of the people of our City are dependent upon our performance.
