Fire Department

Victoria_Fire_Department_LogoThe Victoria Fire Department is comprised of dedicated and trained volunteers from the community who strive to minimize the impacts of hazards and medical emergencies to our citizenry with integrity and compassion.
We accomplish this by:
  • Actively and continually training to meet or exceed all appropriate standards for emergency response.
  • Responding in a safe and timely fashion to all calls.
  • Always striving to conduct ourselves in a professional, honorable and respectful manner.
  • Continually educating the public on hazard awareness and prevention.
  • Living and Breathing: Everyone Goes Home.
The City of Victoria has a combination Fire Department consisting of 28 paid-on-call firefighters who live or work in the City of Victoria, one full-time Fire Chief, and one full-time Assistant Fire Chief. Paid-on-call firefighters devote time outside of their normal work and family lives to serve the needs of their community. The Victoria Fire Department expects a high level of professional conduct from all members. Each member is required to be familiar with and abide by all Fire Department rules, regulations, policies, and operating guidelines. These stringent guidelines help prepare the community’s firefighters to meet the challenge that each alarm brings when duty calls.

All of our staff are Firefighter II certified. All staff, at a minimum, are Emergency Medical Responder certified and 17 have continued on to earn their Emergency Medical Technician certification. The Victoria Fire Department members appreciate your support as we continually strive to make the City of Victoria a safer city.

The Victoria Fire Department members are notified of an emergency by carrying a pager that is activated from the Carver County Sheriff's Office 911 Center. Our agency works closely with the Carver County Sheriffs Office and Ridgeview Medical Center Ambulance Service on all emergency runs. Also, we work and train closely with neighboring Cities of Carver, Chanhassen, Chaska, Excelsior, St. Bonifacius, and Waconia.
