Fire Department


The overall goal of the North Little Rock Fire Department is to prevent the loss of life and property to citizens that are entrusted to our care, through direct intervention and preventative education. This is to be accomplished while ensuring the health and safety of our firefighters and maintaining the highest degree of professionalism within our department. The Fire Department is committed to the pursuit of its mission primarily through prevention and education. When incidents do occur, we provide emergency and non-emergency responses to/and mitigation of fire, medical emergencies, hazardous material incidents, technical rescues, and any natural, man-made or other situation that may arise.


With Smart911, you can provide 9-1-1 call takers and first responders critical information you want them to know in any kind of emergency.

When you call 9-1-1, your Smart911 Safety Profile displays on the 9-1-1 screen and the 9-1-1 call takers can view your addresses, medical information, home information, description of pets and vehicles, and emergency contacts. You can provide as much or as little information as you like.

Smart911 is a national service meaning your Smart911 Safety Profile travels with you and is visible to any participating 9-1-1 center nationwide.
