Message from the Fire Chief


The Irving Fire Department (IFD) was able to accomplish some long term goals this past year. Our new joint drill facility was placed in-service July 21, 2017 and Fire Station 12 was placed in-service August 10, 2017. IFD was also the first fire department to put Pierce Tiller-Trucks into service in the State of Texas. With these new resources we can better serve our citizens and accomplish an Insurance Services Office Public Protection Rating of 1 for the City of Irving! The ISO 1 rating will provide a reduction in insurance premiums to our residents and businesses and best of all provide a huge promotional tool for our economic development team to bring in more corporate partners. The IFD continues to always look for ways to better serve our citizens.

  • Achieved ISO-1 designation for the City of Irving
