Message from the Fire Chief

We are fortunate to live in a vibrant city that continues to develop and lead. Our ability to meet city expectations for a quick response while providing top notch services continues to be a challenge. However, your Irving Fire Department (IFD) is fortunate to be surrounded with supportive residents, a progressive thinking city council and an attentive management staff to help us with this ongoing-duty. IFD continues to look for innovative solutions to make our services more safe, effective and efficient to our customers. For example, IFD helped the City of Irving obtain an Insurance Services Office public protection rating of 1 this past year and implemented the first of its kind traffic management apparatus for protection of other more expensive front-line apparatus and responders on-scene at accidents.
