Fire and Rescue

The Carlisle Fire & Rescue Department is a specialized team of committed men and women that serve with dedication and pride, responding to hundreds of medical and fire calls a year to assist those in need. The members of the fire and rescue department are committed to helping others, saving lives, protecting property and providing fast and dependable services in all emergency and non-emergency activities. The department provides fire, medical, hazardous materials, and technical rescue response.



Our mission is to provide the highest quality medical and fire services in a caring and professional manner. The department is a combined department of part-time staff and volunteers that run 24 hour coverage. Mainly operating on volunteer services, the department does have part-time medics during the weekdays. The EMS department operates at a paramedic level, providing the community with better medical care.

The department works to be proactive in the community and various events. The department inspects and installs smoke detectors, offers fire safety classes, teaches first aid and CPR classes, works with elementary students and attends most all community events.

Through our response efforts, our personnel stand ready to respond.  We expect our work to make a difference in the quality of life in our city. To this end, we try to discover what is most important to do and focus our resources for the greatest, most enduring benefit.

Our staff is dedicated to delivering the highest quality customer service whatever the opportunity and you have our commitment that we will do whatever we can to provide services that exceed you expectations.
