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 part-time 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).
