Message from the Fire Chief

Welcome to the Harrison Fire Department website.

The goal of our page is to provide valuable information about your fire department and the services we provide.

We are committed to providing the highest level of customer service to our community. We protect lives and property through fire suppression, rescue, emergency medical services, fire prevention and public education. We serve our residents with 31 personnel from 3 fire stations and maintain an Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating of a Class 2. We recently created a Community Risk Reduction Division within our department that handles all aspects of building construction and fire code enforcement within the city.

With all of this being said, there is still another very important part of what we do. It is extremely important that your fire department be an active, visible, and approachable part of the community of our growing, vibrant city every chance we get. I encourage you to take the opportunity to stop by and visit with us.

On behalf of the entire department, we thank you for the opportunity to serve you. If we can be of further assistance, please contact us.
