Angel Fire Fire Department PatchDedicated to Serving You, Our Community

The Mission of the Angel Fire Fire Department is to preserve and protect lives and property from the adverse effects of fires or exposure to dangerous conditions, to provide a high level of quality care for medical emergencies, and to protect our citizens through proactive education, prevention, and response. One of several ways to protect the lives and property of the citizens and visitors of Angel Fire is through proactive fire inspections and public education programs.

The Village's Fire Code prescribes regulations consistent with nationally recognized good practices for the safeguarding to a reasonable degree life and property from the hazard of fire, explosion, and other conditions, which may pose a hazard to life and property in the use or occupancy of buildings or premises.
