The mission of the men and women of the Carson City Fire Department is to serve the community with pride, commitment, and compassion. The Carson City Fire Department is comprised of six divisions which contribute to the safe community we enjoy. We serve the community in many different ways, including emergency situation management such as fires and medical services. Personnel receive continuous ongoing training to keep them abreast of every nuance in all areas, including fire and emergency medical service, hazardous materials, confined space rescue, fire prevention, aircraft fire rescue, and others.
In addition, the fire department as a whole is involved in many programs. The Fire Department conducts or assists with numerous public safety programs for commercial, non-profit, and public organizations and individuals, to include Life Safety Inspections, Wildland Urban Interface property inspections and Fuels Reduction Program, Fire Extinguisher training, EMT Basics training for high school students, and CC Care+ ambulance subscription. Please see our Programs page for further information.
In response to Governor Sisolak’s Declaration of Emergency Directive 003, Carson City officials announced today they plan to work closely with businesses and residents in ensuring compliance with the Governor’s directive.
“We all share a civic responsibility to do everything we can to avoid the spread of this virus. That includes following the Governor’s emergency orders,” said Carson City Mayor Bob Crowell. “This disease knows no geographical or political boundaries, so we need to conduct ourselves like we’re all in this together, because we are.”
Sheriff Ken Furlong and Fire Chief Sean Slamon said they believe that most of the City’s businesses are already in compliance and expected their roles to be “educational” with respect to the Governor’s order.
We know that this is a difficult time for all of our citizens, but we urge our businesses to comply with the Governor’s directive. The City will continue to work through what, if anything, it means for local law enforcement. Stay strong Carson City! - Mayor Bob Crowell
