The Ridge Road Fire District is grounded in a culture of continuous improvement through thoughtful planning driven by data and self-analysis, as well as sensible fiscal practices and forethought that support our mission. This organizational management practice is demonstrated through the independent verification and validation of the fire district’s operations by the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE) and the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI).
A mixture of residential, commercial, industrial, and manufacturing buildings as well as a large health care campus exist within the district. To manage emergencies and public safety demands stemming from such a diverse property composition, the district staffs three (3) fire stations with highly trained, skilled, and professional personnel who excel in teamwork and problem solving.
In addition to emergency services that include firefighting, rescue, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) as well as hazardous materials response, district personnel are also committed to the overall wellness of the community that we serve through our community outreach efforts. Community outreach is highlighted by our long standing fire safety education program that delivers age appropriate fire safety lessons annually at all elementary schools located within the district in an attempt to provide each child in grades K-6 these valuable lessons. Further wellness initiatives include smoke and carbon monoxide alarm awareness, and our ongoing efforts to teach the lifesaving skill of CPR.
We are proud to serve the citizens, visitors, and businesses of the district in their times of need, and we strive to identify developing trends within our community so we can shape our programs and services accordingly. Through several progressive initiatives, our goal is to continue to improve and refine the services we provide to the community.
