Protecting Lives and Property

The primary mission of the Highlands Fire District is to protect the lives and property of our citizens and visitors. Fire suppression is just one of the many services we provide. Our goal is to extinguish both structure and wildland fires efficiently and effectively. The Fire District is able to meet this goal through employing highly trained and motivated personnel. Responses to fires are enhanced by an automatic aid system which delivers appropriate people and equipment from across the region rapidly. The foundation of the Highlands Fire District is firmly rooted in our community, and our commitment to you, our neighbors remains steadfast.
