Community Fire Protection

A Tradition of Private Fire Protection

Rural/Metro provides fire protection services primarily under a subscription-based model to individual homeowners and commercial property owners in unincorporated suburbs. These areas are not included within municipal fire department boundaries, and Rural/Metro fills that niche. In fact, it is the business model that our company was founded upon in 1948

As the nation's leading private-sector fire protection provider, Rural/Metro customizes our services to your community's needs, offering a range of services that include:

  • Fire Prevention
  • Fire Suppression
  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Fire Inspection Services
  • Community Health & Safety Programs

Additionally, in certain communities, Rural/Metro partners directly with cities, towns and fire districts under master fire contracts to provide a full complement of fire protection, prevention and emergency medical services.

In partnership with community leaders and property owners, we develop resourceful community fire protection solutions that deliver quality, efficiency, service, safety and value. 

These are just a few of the factors that make Rural/Metro a leader in the private-sector fire protection business.
