The Apple Valley Fire Department is proud to serve the residents and visitors of the City of Apple Valley, Minnesota. Over the last 45 years, the Apple Valley Fire Department, under the leadership of the mayor and City Council, has continually expanded the service we provide to meet the ever-changing needs of our community.
In addition to the internal training we provide to every firefighter, we are constantly seeking opportunities at local, state, and national levels to grow our expertise. This knowledge rewards us with the ability to provide effective responses that are optimally safe for both firefighters and citizens.
We continue our commitment to safety with regularly scheduled inspections and plan reviews for all new and remodel commercial construction projects. The Apple Valley Fire Department also provides fire and life safety education at numerous events each year. We take every opportunity to educate our residents and visitors about extinguisher use, the benefits of fire sprinklers, and other safety issues throughout the year. Our firefighters visit the schools in our city during Fire Prevention Week each October to bring fire safety education and fire alarm drills to the students.
On behalf of the members and staff of the Apple Valley Fire Department, I invite you to browse through our website to familiarize yourself with all the services we provide. We take great pride in our beautiful city and are committed to doing our part to keep it the progressive and safe place it is to work and live.
