Welcome to the IFD

The City of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Fire Department welcomes you!  Serving both residents and vistors to our great city has been our primary mission for over 155 years.  The strong tradition of the Indianapolis Fire Department is carried proudly by the over 1182 sworn members of the IFD and supported by a 65 member civilian staff.

 Indianapolis is an outstanding community that is recognized as a great place to work, live and raise a family.  Hailed as the 12th largest city in America and home to a diverse population, the city attracts millions of visitors annually. The IFD Fire Service district covers 278 square miles of downtown Indianapolis and surrounding areas.

Through fire prevention and life safety education programs Indianapolis firefighters work hand in hand with residents and businesses to make sure their families stay safe. It is our goal to remain a national leader in the fire service by providing  the most comprehensive and up to date information for families who live, work, visit  and play in our city 24/7.
