Office Of The Fire Chief

     The Fire Service is built on two key principles: Life Safety and Property Preservation. Our 63 uniformed personnel and 2 civilian personnel are trained and prepared for any situation that would compromise either one of those areas. There are four fire stations throughout the City of Westland that support four engines, four advanced life support transporting rescues and a command vehicle.

     The Westland Fire department has been providing advanced life support to its citizens since 1997.  In 2018, the fire department responded to over 13,600 calls for service. Approximately 80% of them were medical based. We transport to three major hospitals in the area: St Mary’s (Livonia), Beaumont Wayne (Wayne), and Garden City Osteopathic (Garden City). The University of Michigan, St Joseph's Mercy Hospital, Botsford, Beaumont Dearborn, St. Mary's, and Henry Ford are all level 1 or 2 trauma centers that are used for trauma protocol transport.
