Interim Fire Chief Weishaar has served in this role since January of this year. We're hoping to name a permeant Chief by late Spring.
The Atchison Fire Department provides life safety, property conservation, public education, fire prevention, and emergency preparedness.
We perform the duties of the fire service with integrity and honor.
Atchison Fire Department has been operating as a full-time city department for over 100 years.
In addition to the fire chief, there are three shifts of full-time firefighters.
The department continues the tradition of outstanding service to the Atchison community by delivering fire suppression, medical first response service, fire prevention education, and fire safety inspections in the community.
The department ensures the highest level of training needed to keep fire personnel primed for any event. The fire department responds to an average of over 1200 calls per year.
