Emergency Services

The Duluth Fire Department provides emergency services to the City of Duluth. These emergency services include fire suppression services, emergency medical services, hazardous materials response, confined space rescue, high level rescue, vehicle extrication, water rescue and ice rescue. 

When responding to emergencies, response time is critical. Duluth boost an excellent average response time of under 3:30 minutes. Duluth faces response time challenges because of the unique shape and size of the city. Duluth staffs nine strategically located fire stations with 132 firefighters. The stations are placed in geographic locations that allow the best response time possible. To learn more about the Duluth Fire Department, download the 2012 Fire Department Study.
