The Bellevue Fire Department has nine fire stations staffed 24 hours a day, with a minimum of 48 fire suppression personnel on at all time. All Bellevue Firefighters are also Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). In addition there are 8 Firefighter/Paramedics (EMT-P) on duty.

Seven of our stations staff a three person Engine company capable of responding to all fire and medical emergencies.

Two stations respond with a Light Force company. This consists of five firefighters manning both a 100’ aerial ladder truck and an engine that respond and operate as a single unit.

The Bellevue Fire Department also staffs three Aid Cars (BLS transport vehicles) and four Medic Units for ALS (Advanced Life Support) responses.

Operations are overseen by the Batallion Chief, providing administrative support as well as command and control at major incidents; and the Medical Service Officer (MSO) who oversees Paramedic and EMS response.
