Message from the Chief

Fighting fires is a very important task, but a modern fire department does much more than that.

During a typical year, for example, nearly 87 percent of the calls handled by our department are for emergency medical service.

We also rescue people who are victims of all kinds of accidents and we are prepared to help victims of natural and man-made disasters.

The fire department is responsible for saving lives and protecting property. We deal with fires, explosions, accidents, medical emergencies, toxic materials and a variety of other threats-often under extreme circumstances.

Because of this, our firefighter/paramedics train constantly to keep up-to-date with changes in equipment, technology and techniques.

Please look through our web pages. You’ll find a variety of useful information about safety, fire prevention and medical emergencies.

We are proud to serve our city and we appreciate the support we receive from our community. If you have any questions about fire safety, or any other questions involving the fire department, please give us a call.

Middleburg Heights Fire Department Wins Award

The Mission: Lifeline team at the American Heart Association is excited to continue recognizing EMS agencies for applying the most up-to-date evidence- based treatment guidelines to improve care and outcomes in the communities served. Prehospital personnel are the first providers of care to patients suffering from cardiac emergencies. The role of EMS in the system-of-care for these patients is crucial and often sets the course for the patient’s outcome.

Proudly Serving
for 75 Years.
