Mission Statement:

We, the members of the Paris Fire Department, dedicate our efforts to provide for the safety and welfare of the public through preservation of life, property and the environment.

The Paris Fire Department is a combination department; meaning that it consists of both per diem staff and paid on-call members. The fire department is manned 7 days a week during regular business hours and at night paid on-call members respond from their homes. Regular business hours are Mon-Fri 6:00am-6:00pm and Sat-Sun 7:00am-5:00pm.

The Paris Fire Department is proud of its ISO Class 4 rating. This nationally-recognized standard is based on extensive criteria that evaluate a fire department’s ability to protect people and property. The rating is considered by many insurance companies when deciding the rates on insurance premiums.

Our personnel are very skilled and educated in providing the following services:
Fire Suppression, Rescue, Fire Prevention, Inspections, Fire Setter Program, CPR Classes and Public Fire Education, EMS First Responder at the basic level, Vehicle and Machinery Rescue (Extrication), Hazardous Material Incident Response, Technical Rope Rescue, Structural Building Collapse Response, Water Rescue, and Search & Rescue. We also have an active Junior Firefighter program for the youth of the community as
