The mission of the Springdale Fire Department is to preserve life and property by maintaining a corps of professional, properly trained and fully equipped personnel capable of providing fire prevention, fire suppression, rescue and emergency medical services to those in need. The men and women of the Fire Department provide not only firefighting services, but are also responsible for providing a number of fire prevention programs and services to the residents and business community of our City. Largely due to these fire prevention programs, Springdale firefighters encounter very few fires. However, due to the department’s firefighting efficiency, in March 2013, the department was designated with an ISO 2 rating, one of only thirty-one in the State of Ohio. There are no ISO 1 rated departments in the State and only sixty-one in the country. The primary service delivery of the Springdale Fire Department is emergency medical service (EMS) runs.
