Fire Chief's Message

The Northstar Fire Department exists to serve the community. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for community members and visitors. We do this by reducing risks and responding to calls for service. We are a small-town fire department that takes pride in improving the lives of all those we come into contact with. If you need help, we are here.

The firefighters that make up the Northstar Fire Department are an incredible group of people. They genuinely care about the community, its residents, and visitors. This caring attitude gives our department a small-town feel. I encourage you to stop by and take a tour of either fire station and experience this for yourself.

While we are a small-town department in terms of our feel and mission, we have an incredible amount of resources at our disposal. The department operates at the Advanced Life Support Level (paramedic), has a full-time Forester, is a recognized Firewise Community, has an ISO rating of 2, two staffed stations, three structure fire engines, two wildland fire engines, a 100’ ladder truck, light rescue, snowmobiles, and two chief officers. For more detailed information on our capabilities, I encourage you to review the Your Fire Department document or, better yet, stop by and talk to the on-duty crew.

Again, I would like to reiterate the Northstar Fire Department is here if you need us. Twenty-four hours a day, every day of the year. Hopefully, you never need our emergency services. However, if you do, rest assured we are here for you.

Feel free to contact me directly with any questions or concerns.
