Westminster Fire Department

Welcome to the Westminster Fire Department

The Westminster Fire Department responds to almost 10,000 calls a year. About 70 percent are medical calls. The remainder of calls include response to fires, alarms, hazardous materials, rescues (water, technical, etc.) and public assists. Response time is typically under 6 minutes. For more information and statistics, please view our annual report.

Founded in 1934 as a one-station, volunteer department, the Westminster Fire Department has grown to over 135 career firefighters, paramedics and support staff who serve the city from six fire stations and the Public Safety Center. Like our Westminster Fire Department page on Facebook!

Safety Tips

Warmer Weather and Outdoor Entertaining

As the days begin to warm up, the natural call to the outdoors comes alive. Whether it’s spending more time cooking on the grill, spending time out on the patio, or by an outdoor portable fireplace, the warm weather draws us out of our homes to spend quality time outside with our friends and family. But when hosting outdoor events we want to make sure that everyone is being safe and we have a few tips that should help keep everyone in the family safe the next time you entertain outside.

  • Have an adult present at all times when a portable fireplace is burning
  • Keep anything that can burn, including children and pets, at least three feet away from an open flame
  • When grilling, be sure to keep your grill clean by removing grease buildup from the grill and tray below the grill and never leave your grill unattended
  • Use battery operated flameless candles or solar powered patio (tiki) torches in place of an open flame. Flameless candles come in call colors, shapes, and sizes and many are scented.

If you have any questions about portable fireplaces, seasonal fire safety, or general questions, please contact us at the number below.
