Our Pledge to You

The Reno Fire Department will provide our citizens and visitors the best possible all risk emergency service in the protection of lives and property. Public health, safety, prevention and education are key components of our mission. We are and will continue to be identified by our dedication and pride in outstanding customer service.

River Danger Sign

The Reno Fire Department wants to remind citizens that it is extremely dangerous to be in the river right now.  With warmer temperatures the snow melt is causing our local rivers and streams to rise and run much faster than normal, with very cold water temperature.  We have posted signs like this at our local parks to remind our citizens of the dangers.

Please use caution when near the river and stay out of the water if at all possible. 






Reno Fire is pleased to present our 2017 Community Report.

Automatic Aid Agreement

In November 2016 an updated Cooperative Agreement for Automatic Aid was signed, affecting the Reno Fire Department, Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and the Sierra Fire Protection District. Contained in the Agreement are maps and specific guidelines of the agreement between the agencies for rendering automatic aid on fires.

Recreational Burning Information

As the weather cools, many people are still enjoying their outdoor fire pits. The Reno Fire Prevention Bureau offers important tips and information in their Recreational Fire and Portable Fireplace Burning Information sheet.


Clear Air

With the cold weather, many residents like to take advantage of using a wood stove or fireplace to burn wood or pellets to help heat their homes. Did you know that there is a Burn Code determined each day by the Washoe County Health Department based on our current air quality that tells us if we are allowed to burn?
