The Petersburg Fire Department is committed to provide dependable service in a professional manner while showing compassion for those in need. We will protect lives, property, and the environment through fire suppression, emergency services, rescue, fire prevention, and public education.

Our department is a part time fire department consisting of 17 dedicated members. Our members currently hold various State Fire Marshal certification including Firefighter 2, Firefighter 3, Basic Operations Firefighter, Advance Operations Firefighter, Fire Apparatus Engineer, Fire Service Vehicle Operator, Fire Service Instructor 1, Hazardous Material Awareness, Hazardous Material Operations, Technical Rescue Awareness, Vehicle Machinery Operations, Fire and Arson Investigation I, Fire and Arson Investigation II, Fire and Arson Investigation III and Emergency Medical Technician First Responder, Basic, and Paramedic.
