The Fire Department is built on two key principles: life safety and property preservation. Our 63 uniformed personnel and two 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.
