Fire Department


If you ever have the chance to stop by the fire department, you will see hanging in our meeting room the original department flag. This flag is over 110-year-old, and on it are the words Your Protection, Our Duty. This is the founding principle of the Dormont Fire Department.

The Dormont Fire Department provides fire, EMS support, and life safety protection to the residents, workforce, and guests that frequent our thriving borough. Your department is comprised of both career and volunteer firefighters. Your firefighters spend countless hours training, responding to calls for service, and volunteering in the community. Dormont also provides mutual aid fire services to many of our surrounding communities.

The fire department is responsible for fire prevention programs through our local schools and interacts with the community at events such as National Night Out, Spark/Pride, the Dormont Street & Music Festival, and our annual Holiday Parade. We also administer the borough’s Fire & Life Safety Inspection program where we inspect, on a biennial basis, all commercial properties including apartment buildings of three or more units. Because of our proactive community risk reduction programs, Dormont continues to be ahead of the curve on fire safety. You also benefit from our combination department nature where we have career and volunteer firefighters. We have staffing on duty 24/7, 365 days a year, which results in advanced response times.

If you have ever wondered what it would be like to be a firefighter, I urge you to reach out to us as we would love the opportunity to speak with you!

We are honored to serve the Borough of Dormont and appreciate all the support that we receive from our community.

Help by Clearing Your Fire Hydrant of Snow

The members of the Dormont Fire Department are encouraging residents and business owners to “adopt a fire hydrant” near their property and keep it shoveled away from it during the winter season. This will ensure hydrants are visible and will greatly speed the response time in case of an emergency.

One more reminder: Make sure your house numbers and the numbers on your mailbox haven’t been covered by snow. Having your address readily visible helps fire, police or ambulance crews find your home more quickly in an emergency.
