Your Fire Department

Headshot of Chief Dave DeMarco in uniform.The Everett Fire Department is a community-based emergency service provider dedicated to public safety and quality of life.

The men and women of the Everett Fire Department are a group of individuals that are caring, compassionate and committed to serving the citizens of Everett. Our mission is to provide an enhanced level of public safety and improve the collective health and quality of life of the community.

The fire service is a profession steeped in tradition, but it is important that we are able to leverage technology and innovation to provide the highest level of service to our customers. Our core mission remains the preservation of life and property through fire prevention activities and through response to medical crises; and as such, the Everett Fire Department is able to provide comprehensive “all-hazard” response to emergencies including confined space and high angle rescue, hazardous materials response, wildland firefighting in the urban environment; and a growing marine response capability.

A few years ago the department completed an exhaustive Mission, Vision, and Values development process that will guide us into the future. I encourage you to view my Core Values letter to the community to learn more about that process and outcomes. 

I consider it a great honor to lead an exceptional team of professionals and to serve the citizens as the fire chief of Everett.

Yours in service,

DeMarco signatureDavid DeMarco, Fire Chief
