IFD Chief
Ernest Malone
IFD to host Open House this Saturday

The Indianapolis Fire Department will open its doors on Saturday November 22, 2014 as part of a city wide neighborhood open house. IFD Chief Ernest Malone invites you and your family to attend one of the 7 selected IFD Stations and meet with firefighters and other personnel who serve that area.  The IFD Service District covers 275 Square miles in Marion County and is serviced by 44 stations divided into 7 Battalions.  One station from each battalion was chosen to participate in the open house. The IFD city wide open house is part of Chief Malone’s commitment to engage our community with the firefighters that serve it.  The selection of the particular station is part of Director Riggs DPS Initiative that targets specific areas in need of a focused public safety community partnership.   In partnership with Firefighters Local 416, the IFD continues its pro-active community service efforts that go beyond emergency response.
