Message from the Chief

As Fire Chief, I would like to be the first to welcome you to the Norristown Fire Department website.

Every day – 24 hours a day – Fire Department personnel are on duty to serve the citizens of The Municipality of Norristown. We stand ready regardless of your emergency.  The Norristown Fire Department is comprised of the some of the very best career and volunteer firefighters in the state. The Norristown Fire Department is highly trained, well equipped, extremely dedicated, and focused on service to their community.

Our core mission is to protect the public from fire. We do this through a team approach to Prevention, Preparedness, Education and Response.

Norristown Fire Department is an all hazards department meaning that we also protect the public from many others types of events that can threaten the municipality or its residents. We do this through Emergency Management of man-made and natural disasters, Hazardous Materials Response and Technical Rescue.

This website enhances our public outreach by allowing us to rapidly update the public about events, and other important information. In addition, it allows the citizens to quickly find the answers too many of the questions they may have about the department.

If you have any questions or remarks please feel free to contact me directly at 610-292-8281.
