Welcome to the Tangent Rural Fire District.  Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and to learn about Tangent Fire, our District and those who give their time to benefit our community.

Our mission here at Tangent Fire is “to provide quality service to our community by safely protecting and preserving life and property through public education and emergency response.”  It is through the efforts of our volunteer emergency responders, the support of our staff and by the direction of our Board of Directors that we can complete this mission.

Tangent Fire values our ability to commit to our community that we will operate with integrity, teamwork, accountability, respect, excellence, provide quality service and accomplish this while keeping safety at the highest level. 

I am honored to work with the dedicated and professional men and women that make up Tangent Fire.  I admire their commitment to serve this community, assist our partnering agencies and maintain their training to ensure the safety of all.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us here at the fire station.
