Fire Department

Our Mission

The Sheffield Lake Fire Department is driven to provide the highest level of professional service in every situation we encounter. We will achieve this through training, teamwork and by living our core values. Our efforts will focus on fire suppression, emergency medical response, fire prevention and community education to serve and protect lives, property and the environment.

The department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with at least three firefighters/paramedics on duty at all times. The Sheffield Lake Fire Department has been able to provide the community with an average response time around four (4) minutes when assistance is needed.
