Fire Department

gear      The Wickliffe Fire Department was established in 1921 for the community that had no organized fire protection. We are committed to serving the residents and guests of Wickliffe along with our surrounding communities with outstanding services. We do this with professionalism, respect, integrity, teamwork, and courage. Our Fire Department provides 24-hour fire and emergency services using a combination of both full-time and part-time personnel. Responding from one centrally located fire station, we utilize a modern fleet of emergency vehicles including 2 fire engines, 1 ladder truck, 3 ALS ambulances, 1 hazardous materials truck, and multiple staff-support vehicles.

     We offer not only fire suppression, but also advanced life support Emergency Medical Service, and participate in county specialty response teams such as Hazardous Materials and provider other vital community services.

     To better serve the community, our Fire Prevention Bureau also performs inspections, investigations, plan review and public education.

     Our goal is simple, to be ready and responsive to the needs of our community.
