From the Chief

I would like to welcome you to the Dayton Fire Department website. It is my hope that our website can sufficiently provide you with information regarding our services, personnel and resources. Since 1863 the dedicated men and women of the Dayton Fire Department have been honored to provide fire, rescue, hazardous materials and emergency medical response services to the citizens and visitors of our city. The Dayton Fire Department takes pride in being a highly professional organization. Our committed personnel provide outstanding emergency and non-emergency services in a variety of activities city-wide, as well as regionally.

The mission of the Dayton Fire Department is committed to providing the highest level of broad-based fire, health and rescue services to those entrusted to our care. We will prevent harm to people, their property and the environment through education and prevention programs. We will limit and mitigate harm when and where required. We will be active, productive and responsive members of the community. We carry out this mission with over 300 personnel working out of twelve stations and one fire training center. As you learn more about our department programs we welcome comments to help us serve you better. Serving our community and the public is the reason for our existence.

I am honored to serve as your fire chief and thank you for becoming more familiar with your fire department,

Jeff Lykins
