Fire Department

Mission Statement

The Selma Fire & Rescue provides fire and rescue protection to the City of Selma and the three-mile police jurisdiction. Operating out of four stations, we utilize 4 engine companies, one ladder company, one rescue company, and one hazardous materials unit. On average, we handle over 600 calls per year and maintain a Class 4 ISO Rating.

When fully staffed we have 54 line personnel, 4 administrative personnel, and 2 secretaries. Our line personnel operate from three shifts of personnel who work 24 hours on duty, then 48 hours off-duty.

Fire Prevention Program: Our program has been well received and has also been credited with saving lives. Each October our fire prevention team attempts to visit all of our middle and elementary schools within the city limits. We also receive requests from many other schools and agencies for our program. We attempt to accommodate every school that we can but unfortunately due to staffing, firefighter training schedules, and budget restraints we may be unable to participate.
