About the Department
The Geneva Fire Department, formed in 1895, originally consisted of 14 members. Today, that number has increased to more than 60 members with 3 administrators, 20 full-time and 46 paid-on call firefighters.

An ALS ambulance service is provided by six private contract paramedics. All these groups work together as a combination department serving the City and Township of Geneva and its 24,500 residents. 

Vision Statement
We are an internationally accredited fire and rescue agency dedicated to providing diverse, professional and skilled services to the citizens of Geneva. We believe in deep collaboration with both our internal and external partners to maintain a safe community in which to raise a family and conduct business.
