The Amarillo Fire Department
The Amarillo Fire Department was established in 1897 and has a public service history that has exemplified the attributes of honor, courage, and dedication. This has been accomplished by the selfless commitment of many individuals. It is our goal moving forward to honor the service and memory of the generations that came before us by continuing to provide the finest professional services possible in as safe a manner as possible.
The mission of the Amarillo Fire Department states, “Our mission is to protect lives and property in our community by providing the highest quality of professional services.”Traditionally, this meant providing primarily fire protection. In today’s environment, these services may include Fire Protection, Emergency Medical Service, Hazardous Materials/Homeland Security, and Rescue. Also included are Fire Prevention/Investigation, and Public Education/Information.
The people that make up the Amarillo Fire Department are our greatest asset. The knowledge, skills, and professionalism exhibited by the membership on a daily basis are second to none. Partnered with a committed city leadership, the AFD will continue to make Amarillo a safer community in which to live and work.
