The mission of the Lowell Fire Department is to improve the quality of life in the City of Lowell by providing fire protection, emergency response services, fire prevention, and activities with the public educational department. Our goal is to protect all citizens, their property and the environment from natural and man-made disasters.
Our motto is Promoting Safety, Preventing Fires and Saving Lives. We strive to accomplish this in a courteous, professional manner.
The Lowell Fire Department has 13 companies strategically located around the city. These companies provide services to but are not limited to that neighborhood. The LFD does not just respond to fires. In addition to fire incidents, the LFD responds to calls for emergency medical services, hazardous materials incidents, ice and water rescues/recoveries, automobile accidents, including extrications, and technical and high-angle rescues. The Administration, the Fire Prevention Bureau, the Fire Investigation Unit, and the Hazardous Materials Division all work together as one team to educate the community and develop various programs to meet our community's needs.
Several grants have been awarded to support our comprehensive fire public education program targeting elementary school students, which was established in 1995. Our fire prevention unit has become a pro-active office for inspecting and monitoring residential and commercial fire safety installations.
Training & Education
Training and education are paramount to fulfilling the mission of the Fire Department. All members are trained to First Responder Level.
