Fire Department
New Patch


Proudly Serving Since 1942

The Auburn Hills Fire Department (AHFD) originated as a volunteer fire department in 1942 serving what was then Pontiac Township. Today our personnel operate out of three strategically placed fire stations, providing fire protection and advanced life support EMS service for 23,000 residents over 17 square miles. Due to the heavy industrial / commercial make up of our city, the day time population can rise to over 100,000 people. Auburn Hills is home to over 40 international corporations and several unique facilities such as the Chrysler Tech Center, Great Lakes Crossing Mall, as well as 5 college campuses including Oakland University. The department responds to 3,300-3,400 calls annually.  We are a full time combination agency comprised of full time personnel, paid on call firefighters, and part-time EMT/Paramedics. AHFD participates in the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS). This provides a streamlined system of automatic aid responses from neighboring fire departments for significant incidents as well as improved interagency cooperation and training opportunities.

The demands on the fire service has changed in recent years. The fire service has been tasked with providing an answer to an expanding list of emergencies. Auburn Hills Fire Department is a growing and evolving to meet this need.

 Since 2012, the department has

  • Promoted 3 lieutenants.
  • Hired 4 full time Firefighter/Paramedics.
  • Purchased a new frontline fire engine.
  • Purchased 3 advanced life support ambulances.
  • Started providing full advanced life support EMS transportation services.
  • Expanded the departments staffing and response model.
  • Upgraded several pieces of both fire and EMS equipment.
  • Revitalized our fire and EMS training systems.
  • On August 2, 2016, residents approved a ballot proposal that will provide and increase in funding for the department. The goal is to hire additional personnel and staff all 3 fire stations 24/7.

The Auburn Hills Fire Department is committed to providing emergency services to its citizens and guests that are second to none. We are constantly researching, studying, and training to stay on the forefront of emergency services.
