Message From The Chief

On behalf of the men and women of the Artesia Fire Department I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope you will find that we are here to serve you, the City of Artesia citizens, visitors, and businesses. It is our mission to serve and respond to all fires, medical emergencies, and hazardous materials incidents as well as to educate our community about fire safety codes and regulations. We are committed to providing these services in an efficient, courteous and cost effective manner. Our department accomplishes this through constant training and education of our personnel.

The Artesia Fire Department has a proud tradition of delivering outstanding customer service. Members of the department spend hundreds of hours every year learning the latest response technology and honing their skills in training sessions. Our first priority is to respond to the needs of our citizens in a professional and expeditious manner. Every member of this department is dedicated to service.

The department is an "all-hazard" response agency. Our members are trained, equipped and dedicated to providing outstanding emergency medical, fire, hazardous materials, technical rescue, natural and man-made disaster response. Thanks to the support of the mayor and the Artesia City Council the department is well equipped and prepared to respond to all emergencies.

I hope you enjoy the website. If I, or any member of my staff, can ever be of service please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for allowing us to serve.
