Fire Suppression

The goals of the Fire Suppression and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Division are to protect life and property from suffering, loss and damage due to fire, medical and environmental emergencies.

These divisions are responsible for incident response as well as for the safety and health of its personnel.  Romulus maintains a full-time firefighting and suppression force of 11.  A trained part-time complement of 7 firefighters supplements the full time staff, enabling the department to respond to calls in a more efficient and effective manner.

This division provides the functions of fire suppression, hazardous materials incident response mitigation, rescue response, emergency medical first responder service, training, alarm receipt and response.

Full-time personnel are recognized as members of an organized union, the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), Local 4126.

Our union representative team collaborates to promote a harmonious relationship between the City and the Association. Their goals are to improve public fire fighting service, and to provide orderly and equitable means of resolving differences between the City and the Association. Their service to community organizations such as Romulus Goodfellows Inc. and the Muscular Dystrophy Association are valuable measures of their dedication and compassion to helping others.
