The Fire Services Division is responsible for responding to life safety emergencies within Woodbury. Some examples of the types of emergency calls that the division responds to are: fires, rescues, hazardous material situations and emergency medical calls. The Fire Division is also responsible for public safety education and fire prevention programs.
Woodbury's Fire Division is considered to be a combination fire department. This means the city uses a combination of full-time and on-call employees to respond to calls for service. Currently the department is staffed with one full-time fire chief, two full-time fire commanders, nine full-time firefighters, support staff and more than 70 on-call firefighter/EMTs.
On-call firefighter/EMTs and on-call EMTs are not full-time employees of the city. They are individuals who work a regular full-time job elsewhere and respond to emergencies when they are home. On-call employees are paid when they respond to fire, medical and emergency calls, and when they attend training and other required activities.
The Fire Division provides all of the firefighter and EMT training that is needed to become certified by the state as Firefighter I, Firefighter II and Emergency Medical Technician. Firefighters also receive specialized training, as well as continuing education needed to maintain primary certification.
