How Can We Help You?


A message from the Fire Chief

I’d like to welcome you to the Anchorage Fire Department webpage.  Our mission is “To serve our community before, during and after an emergency”.  Every day – 24 hours a day – fire department personnel are on the job to serve the citizens of the Municipality of Anchorage.  We stand ready regardless of your emergency – structure fires, wild fires, medical emergencies, water and swift water rescues, hazardous material responses, vehicle extrication, etc.  Our personnel are expertly trained and continue to receive ongoing training to ensure new technologies are incorporated into our operations.

Under the leadership of its medical director, Dr. Michael Levy, the Fire Department has received awards and recognition for its expert first responder medical care.  New studies are conducted and strides are being made all the time to provide you and your family the best emergency medical care that we can.

The support you have shown to the Fire Department is heartwarming and greatly appreciated.  Your letters and phone calls letting me know about the care and courtesy you have received from our personnel lets me know that we are excelling in customer service – which is what our aim is on every call we respond to.  

I welcome your comments and suggestions to improve our webpage to make it more responsive to your needs. 

Warmest regards,

John Fullenwider
