Tucson Fire

The Tucson Fire Department has been fighting fires and saving lives in the Old Pueblo for more than 120 years. Starting in 1881 as a scrappy, all-volunteer force, the department has grown into a modern department nationally recognized for its overall excellence.

From the beginning, Tucson firefighters made every effort to respond to the needs of the community, as it grew from a lawless territorial outpost into a modern city-today the state’s second largest.

The Tucson Fire Department’s main headquarters are located at 300 South Fire Central Pl. Tucson, Arizona 85701.
