Fire Chief Jeff Hudson

The Springfield Fire & Rescue Service has a proud history of serving our community. That spirit of service continues as we move forward into the future.

Our mission statement… The Springfield Fire & Rescue Service will provide to its community an efficient, well-trained team of firefighters to safely protect lives and property through Fire Prevention, Education, Fire Suppression, Rescue Services, Emergency Management and Emergency Medical Response.

These words summarize what we do, but it is the men and women of the Springfield Fire & Rescue Service that embrace these words on a daily basis and continue to make a difference in our community.

I am proud to represent such a fine organization, as I continue to be impressed on a daily basis with the compassion and resourcefulness of the men and women of our Department whose commitment to the residents, businesses and visitors of our community is unwavering.  

The fire crews are comprised of well-trained personnel that respond to Structural Fires, Hazardous Materials Response, Urban Search and Rescue, Wild Land Fires, Motor Vehicle Collisions, Farm Accidents, Medical Emergencies as well as many other incidents on a daily basis.

It is our commitment to you that we stand ready to assist in your time of need day or night, with compassion, empathy, professionalism, respect and dignity.
