The Jackson Fire Department provides Fire and Life Safety Services to the citizens and visitors of Jackson by implementing aggressive fire suppression, community-based fire safety programs, comprehensive prevention inspections, and pre-emergency planning.
The Jackson Fire Department strives to be the best in new technology, updated equipment (clothing, turnout gear, new fire apparatus), training and fire protection/safety programs. Also, we are on the path to be fully staffed by the end of 2019 which will help to retain our class 3 fire rating and move toward a class 2 rating.
