Emergency Preparedness


In the event of a disaster or emergency, the Ashtabula Fire Department will make every effort to provide assistance for you.


However, as we all learned during the winter storm earlier this year, the size and scope of an emergency may exceed our ability to assist everyone at the same time. During these times, we are forced to prioritize our efforts and focus on the most severe problems first. This may significantly delay our response to your request. 


You can minimize the impact of an emergency by taking action now to be more prepared. This website is designed to help you. If you have any questions about preparedness, feel free to call the Fire Department.
