The Savage Fire Department expects a very high level of professional conduct from our members.

These stringent guidelines ensure that when duty calls, the community's firefighters will be thoroughly prepared to meet the challenge that lies ahead.
The mission of the Savage Fire Department is to minimize loss of life and property in the City of Savage from fires, natural disasters and other life threatening situations and to assist other emergency agencies conducting similar activities. The members of the Savage Fire Department will strive to perform these services in an efficient manner by maintaining effective education, prevention, emergency response and suppression training.
