Important Notice About Medical Records

  • We do not run 'medical' calls; therefore we do not provide medical run records. 
  • If a person was involved in an incident (such as vehicle accident or dwelling fire resulting in injury) they will need to contact the appropriate medical agency such as the Quick response service, Ambulance or Air transport service.
  • We will provide the fire incident report related to that particular call as outlined above.

Picking Up Reports

  • Reports can be picked up if you arrange a time with the Second Assistant Chief, otherwise we don't offer pick up/same day service.
