Our Mission

The Ramsey Fire Department will train and respond within our capabilities to minimize our citizen's losses. We will treat those needing our services with kindness and respect. Through education of ourselves, the public, our businesses, and neighbors, we will continuously strive for a safer community today and tomorrow.

Our department is comprised of 52 highly trained paid on call firefighters that are state certified in both firefighting and first responder response. Administrative staff consists of a full time Fire Chief, Fire Marshal, and Secretary. Ramsey Fire covers 29 square miles of Ramsey as well as 36 square miles of Nowthen.

Fire Services

The fire department responds to approximately 500 calls per year including:

  • Confined Space
  • Disaster Management
  • Fire Suppression
  • Hazardous Material
  • Heavy Rescue

The fire prevention side of the department conducts code compliance inspections, education, and investigation of fire incidents and preplanning of businesses.

Since 2007, Ramsey and Nowthen provide fire services to both communities under a joint powers agreement. Under this agreement, quality services are provided with costs shared between the two communities. As a fire department, our main objective is to service the community. If you have any questions about the services provided or details of an incident, feel free to give us a call at 763-427-4452 or stop in at our administrative offices at Fire Station 1 on Armstrong Boulevard.
