Welcome From Fire Chief Bill Thornton

Welcome to the Nevada Fire Department website. The pages on this site represent the activities of 13 professional firefighters. They take pride in their duties and their commitment to the people of Nevada. We are very proud of the role that the Nevada Fire Department plays in our community.

It is my pleasure to represent all of the outstanding members who proudly serve the City of Nevada in the Nevada Fire Department. I invite you to also visit all of the City of Nevada Website to find out more about what makes this a vibrant, progressive and safe community to the 8,327 people who call Nevada home. We constantly strive to maintain our city services to ensure a high quality of life for the citizens of Nevada.

The Nevada Fire Department web pages are intended to be informative as well as entertaining. It is hoped that by using this site, you will learn more about the services and programs our fire department provides. Additionally, we hope you find the information and related links as valuable tools in answering your questions regarding fire safety and the Nevada Fire Department. Hopefully, you will never need our emergency services, but if you do, we will respond with a fast, professional, well-trained and courteous team to answer your call for assistance. Take comfort in the fact they are there every minute, everyday to make you safe.
