Our Mission

Medina's Mission:

To preserve, promote, and support a community that values a high quality of life, local heritage, and diversity through an approach to government marked by innovation, responsiveness, and resourcefulness.


Medina Fire Department's Mission:

The mission of the Medina Fire Department is to protect life and preserve property in and around our community. Our goal is to maintain a safe environment for Medina’s citizens to live and work. We aim to accomplish this through the application of emergency management, fire prevention and inspection, emergency medical services, and incident response.


Our department is committed to providing these services at the highest levels of excellence and professionalism.  We do this by hiring state-certified professional firefighters who are trained in cutting edge rescue techniques, emergency medical procedures and fire suppression. We utilize the best equipment and apparatus available so that we have the capability to mitigate any incident. We do our best to operate in a fiscally responsible way, without detracting from our readiness level or our ability to save lives.  Our firefighters live and work in our community, and as a result, we strive to provide the highest standard of service to Medina’s residents.
