The Fire Department provides fire suppression, emergency response at the EMT level and hazardous materials response at the Operations level. The Department also provides fire code inspections\enforcement, fire prevention and education, and administers the City's disaster response programs and the City Code Enforcement program. In addition to our day to day responses we are also one of six member cities that make up the North Suburban Hazardous Materials Response Team. That team is made up of firefighters trained to the hazmat technician level and respond to hazardous materials incidents in the six participating cities or when requested by another entity for mutual aid.
Each year the fire department responds to over 1,500 calls including fires, medical emergencies, automobile accidents and mutual aid to other communities.
The St. Anthony Fire Department is a combination paid on-call and full-time department working out of one station. To provide an immediate response 24-hours a day, the Department is made up of seven full-time personnel and 19 paid on-call personnel.
