City Government and Services

Fire Department

The North Royalton Fire Department is comprised of 33 full-time, professionally trained Firefighters, Officers and Chiefs. All members are State Certified Paramedics enabling them to provide Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and other skilled medical care to the community. Emergency response time to your home or business is generally four to seven minutes. However in the northwest and north central portions of the City, response times have been reduced to less than four minutes since the opening of Fire Station #2 in June of 2005. A minimum of 8 firefighters are on duty 24 hours every day of the year.

Emergency response apparatus includes:

  • three fire engines
    Engine 11 - Compressed Air Foam System with larger water tank.
    Rescue 1 - Equipped with Extrication and Rescue equipment.
    Engine 21 - 65' Aerial Ladder
  • three ambulances fully equipped for Advanced Life Support (ALS)
  • two multi-purpose utility vehicles
  • Two of the fire engines purchased in 1995 were specifically designed for fire suppression and rescue operations for this community. The newest fire engine (2003) has a large capacity water tank and a state-of-the-art Compressed Air Foam System (CAFS), which allows foam concentrate to be mixed with the water for improved fire suppression and reduced water damage.

    Additional equipment in-service allows for hazardous material response, water rescue, vehicle extrication and rope/high angle rescue. Numerous members of the department have selected specialized training in these areas and are also members of the Southwest Emergency Response Team (SERT). This team can respond into the community for technical rescue operations when dispatched.

    Fire Safety inspections are conducted by our State Certified Fire Safety Inspectors for all commercial and industrial occupancies within the community. CPR instruction, First Aid refresher courses, and child automobile safety seat inspections are also available through the fire department.
