The mission of the Fairview Park Fire Department is to provide excellence in service in the fields of emergency medical care, rescue, fire prevention and suppression, and public safety education. Such service is achieved through a combination of innovation, training, teamwork, and a commitment to the safety of the citizens of Fairview Park.

Department administration and emergency operations are under the control of Chief Anthony Raffin. The Fire Chief also oversees the Fire Prevention Bureau, the responsibilities of which include regular fire inspections of commercial buildings in Fairview Park.

In addition to the Fire Chief, the department employs an Administrative Assistant, three Captains, three Lieutenants, and 18 Firefighter/Paramedics. These firefighters are well-trained and ready for any and all emergencies that may occur in Fairview Park. An ongoing state-mandated training program allows all members, especially the youngest and newly hired, to fine-tune and sharpen their firefighting skills.

As for paramedic skills, each member of the Fire Department receives continuing education through Fairview Hospital and the Cleveland Clinic. Fairview Hospital acts as the Fire Department’s medical control, providing guidance and protocols in areas of emergency medicine. Paramedics are recertified every two years in ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), which ensures the best qualified paramedics for the best emergency medical service possible.
