The Goal of the City of Fort Wayne is to become the safest City of our size in the United States of America. It is the mission of the Fort Wayne Fire Department to prevent the loss of life and to control or reduce the loss of property by applying all of our professional knowledge and resources. We will accomplish this mission through fire suppression, rescue, code enforcement, public education, fire investigation, and professional development training. It is our number one priority to provide the best fire service to all citizens and visitors to our great city.
- Firefighters may risk their lives to save a life.
- Firefighters may put themselves at moderate risk to save property.
- Firefighters will risk nothing to save life or property that is already lost or destroyed.
