The Brooklyn Center Fire Department (BCFD) was founded in 1949, and protects a population of over 30,000 people living in an area of nine square miles. We operate out of two stations that protect residential, commercial, and industrial areas.

The BCFD responds to fires, medical emergencies, and chemical spills within the city in a timely and efficient manner to minimize the loss sustained by any citizen or property in the city. It is the goal of the Fire Department to arrive at an emergency scene within six minutes.

The BCFD consists of four full-time staff, including the fire chief, the deputy fire chief, a fire inspector, an administrative coordinator and 40 paid-on-call firefighters, some of whom also serve as fire officers and public education officers. Go here to learn more about our firefighters and how to join the department: Become a BCFD Firefighter

Prevention & Education
Inspections of commercial, industrial, and rental units are conducted to ensure that they comply with current fire and life safety codes. The fire department also works with citizens, schools and industry to teach fire safety awareness to children and adults.

Our mission is to protect the lives and property of the community from emergencies involving fire, medical, hazardous materials, and environmental causes. We accomplish our mission through education, fire prevention,
fire suppression, emergency medical services, and other non-emergency activities.
