Fire Department

The fire personnel serving the City of Auburn have one focus: protecting what you value. In the event of a fire, medical emergency, vehicle accident, natural disaster, or another emergency, we do everything we can to protect the people and property involved. Staffed 24 hours a day, our career and volunteer firefighters operate out of two strategically located stations.

Fire Inspections

If you have any questions regarding fire inspections, email Division Chief Shane Jacobs or call at 260-925-8240.

Firefighter Training

Training is one of the most important things we do. With a large number of state-certified instructors on staff, we're able to offer training sessions to many neighboring cities. For more information, email Division Chief Andy Maloney or call at 260-925-8255, ext. 1503.

KnoxBox for Businesses

When seconds matter, it's important that first responders have rapid access to your building. The KnoxBox enables immediate access and helps avoid unsafe forced entry-ultimately, reducing injuries and minimizing property damage. Fill out this form for a KnoxBox (PDF).
