Ramsey Fire Department
    

 

 

Thank you for visiting the Ramsey Fire Department web page. Our department is comprised of 52 highly trained paid on call firefighters that are state certified in both firefighting and first responder response. Administrative staff consists of a full time Fire Chief, Fire Marshal, and Secretary. Ramsey Fire covers 29 square miles of Ramsey as well as 36 square miles of Nowthen.

Firefighters respond out of 3 stations:

  • Station 1 (15050 Armstrong Blvd)
  • Station 2 (5650 Alpine Drive NW)
  • Station 3 (19800 Nowthen Blvd in Nowthen)

 

The fire department responds to approximately 500 calls per year including fire suppression, heavy rescue, water rescue, confined space, rapid intervention, hazardous material, and disaster management. The fire prevention side of the department conducts code compliance inspections, education, investigation of fire incidents and preplanning of businesses.

 

Since 2007, Ramsey and Nowthen provide fire services to both communities under a joint powers agreement. Under this agreement, quality services are provided with costs shared between the two communities. As a fire department, our main objective is to service the community. If you have any questions about the services provided, details of an incident, or just want to chat, feel free to give us a call at 763.427.4452 or stop in at our administrative offices at Fire Station 1 on Armstrong Blvd..
