Tempe's newest fire station is becoming reality. Tempe Fire Medical Rescue broke ground for Fire Station 7 at a ceremony attended by Mayor Mark Mitchell, Councilmember Lauren Kuby, nearby neighbors from Estate La Colina and staff from Community Services and Public Works departments and Caliente Construction.
See the renderings on the project web page and follow its progress. Fire Station 7 is expected to be in service summer 2019.
Veterans Telemedicine Program receives award
Tempe Fire Medical Rescue was honored to receive a special Tempe Mayor’s Disability award at a recent ceremony. The Veterans Telemedicine Program won the Legacy Award in memory of Capt. Kyle Brayer who was killed in an off-duty shooting in February. The telemedicine program partners with the Phoenix Veterans Affairs and Tempe St. Luke’s hospitals to bring homecare to military veterans with chronic health problems. Kyle led the creation of the program and saw it through its first year of service. For more information, go to our Medical Services page, click here.
Tempe Fire Medical Rescue
The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department is an “all hazards” department that responds to all types of incidents including fires, automobile accidents, medical emergencies, hazardous materials response, technical rescues and much more. Additionally, we pride ourselves on being involved in promoting emergency preparedness, fire prevention and a variety of life safety programs.
The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department was the first Internationally Accredited Department in the nation, and we are fully accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International. The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department has an ISO rating of 2. Tempe is one of 585 in the country to achieve this high rating and has maintained this rating since 1982, which speaks to the Department’s fire suppression capabilities.
Tempe participates in an automatic aid system with 26 other fire departments in the Phoenix area. Automatic aid means the closest unit is dispatched using GPS to an emergency regardless of jurisdiction. For example, if a fire is on the Tempe/Mesa border and Tempe Fire is closer to the incident than Mesa, Tempe will respond. This decreases response times, provides the department with unlimited resources, and is a more efficient and effective use of resources throughout the Phoenix area.
Our Mission: We, the members of the Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department, dedicate our efforts to provide for the safety and welfare of the public through preservation of life, health, property, and the environment.
