Welcome to Newton Fire/EMS
This web site is filled with a variety of useful information that will help educate you on our growing department. I hope you find this site easy to navigate, and if we can be of any other assistance to you, please let us know.
The Newton Fire/EMS Department is dedicated to a constant pursuit of excellence in the provision of quality fire, rescue, medical, and other individualized services to those in need.
Emergency services have evolved into a very demanding profession. Past experiences have heightened our awareness to the fact that emergency services must be prepared to respond to a multitude of ever-changing challenges and dangers. Some of the future internal challenges that we face include economic changes, maintaining and improving our skills, preparing future leaders, and enhancing safety.
Newton Fire/EMS is a department of 50 committed dual-role public safety members who are dedicated to honoring tradition, responding to the present, and preparing for the future. We constantly strive to deliver our services in a professional manner.
Our thanks go out to the Newton City Commissioners, the City Manager and City staff, and the great citizens whom we strive to serve, for your continued support, which not only allows us to respond to today’s needs, but allows us to prepare to meet future needs.
Again, welcome to our website and on behalf of all the members of Newton Fire/EMS, thank you for allowing us to serve you.
Scott Metzler, Chief
