Fire Department
The Council Bluffs Fire Department (CBFD) provides a full range of life safety protection for the 60,000 plus residents who reside in Iowa's eighth-largest city. The CBFD's 107 career personnel, including firefighters and paramedic-trained personnel, give emphasis to all aspects of life safety. This includes fire prevention, fire fighting, emergency medical care, technical rescue, hazardous materials mitigation, disaster response, public education, and community service.

Professionally trained staff is on duty at all times at five neighborhood fire stations strategically located across the department's 40 square-mile jurisdiction.
