A Message from Fire Chief David Pennington

Thank you for visiting the Springfield Fire Department website. Whether you're looking for information about fire safety education or how to rent a community room, I hope you find it informational and easy to navigate.

I am proud to be Chief of the Springfield Fire Department. Our mission is clear: We are a professional organization dedicated to serving our community. This Web site shows the numerous ways in which we achieve our mission.

Community Risk Reduction is our number 1 goal. We would much rather citizens never experience a fire than need to call us to put one out. To promote this goal, you will find many resources to promote fire prevention and safety education.  You will find information on trainings and presentations available to the public including fire extinguisher training, school fire safety presentations and training for bars and nightclubs, just to name a few.

Finally, you will also find a tremendous amount of data and documents, an up-to-date map of fire incidents, our annual reports, Strategic Plan and much more.

Again, thank you for visiting. If you have suggestions for things you'd like to see online, please let us know and come back and we hope you will visit us again very soon.
