Fire Department

Mission Statement
It is the continuous mission of the Norwalk Fire Department to excel in the preparation and delivery of emergency services and public safety. This will be accomplished through the tireless dedication for the preservation of life and property by the men and women of this department and their partners.

Norwalk has four full-time employees
to staff the station during hours that lack paid on-call staff availability. Rapid population growth - mostly among commuters, combined with a significant increase in calls for service has prompted the city to increase career staffing.
