Our Mission: Protect Life, Prevent Harm, Preserve Property


The Vestavia Hills Fire Department mission statement is “Protect Life, Prevent Harm, Preserve Property,” and we do a lot more than just fight fire. In addition to fire suppression and rescue, the VHFD offers several community services and includes the Building Safety operations of the City. Our Vestavia Hills Fire Department has been recognized for excellence and innovation, and the community enjoys favorable insurance ratings due to the fire protection offered.

We hope that you will find these pages to be informative regarding the services we provide.
