Cullman Fire Rescue, under the supervision of Fire Chief Brian Bradberry, is committed to perform with professionalism with an attitude of service and a desire to improve, creating a tradition of excellence. Our committed staff takes pride in our community and we feel that we are more than a fire department!
Our Firefighter/EMTs are on-duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and respond out of three fire stations. We respond to over 3000 incidents annually including structure fires, vehicle fires, hazardous materials, technical rescues, emergency medical emergencies and mutual aid requests. We strive to provide an exceptional All-Hazard response that requires our firefighters to be extensively trained and certified for medical emergencies (ALS), vehicle collisions, fires, hazardous material incidents and technical rescue incidents. Cullman Fire Rescue is part of the Alabama Mutual Aid System Division F Response Team (Alabama Task Force 3) and provides mutual aid assistance to surrounding fire departments.
Preventing fires and emergencies before they happen is of the utmost importance for Cullman Fire Rescue. Our fire prevention efforts include fire code inspections, fire investigations and a wide variety of public education programs including fire safety in our schools, fire extinguisher training, and community based CPR/AED training.
We strive to meet the needs of everyone in our city. We want to serve those who live here, visit here and work here, just as we would our own families. Our goal is to serve our community with compassion and professionalism and always look for methods to improve.
