Chandler Fire Department began in 1917 when the Town of Chandler Chamber of Commerce organized a fire company consisting of 18 volunteers. The first piece of mechanized fire apparatus used by the department was a 1936 Dodge pumper. That unit, “The Old Dodge,” is still part of the apparatus inventory in use for parades and demonstrations. In 1953 the first paid fire chief and captains were hired.
In 1969, the organization was officially reorganized as a paid fire department with a volunteer standby system. By 1970, the Chandler Fire Department was fully staffed by paid personnel as it is to this day. In 1975, the Department added advanced emergency medical care by training three firefighters as paramedics.
Chandler Fire Department started a new contract and partnership with the Maricopa Ambulance on January of 2022 for emergency ambulance service.
