About SFFR

The Sioux Falls Fire Rescue (SFFR) is a highly trained department of skilled first responders. SFFR is a nationally accredited department with more than 200 members and 12 fire stations strategically placed throughout the city.

Did you know that SFFR does more than just put out fires? Emergency medical calls now make up more than half of all emergency responses in our community. As part of our commitment to our community and its emergency needs, SFFR has developed one of the largest Public Access Defibrillator programs in the country and regularly provides CPR classes. SFFR was presented with an ISO Class 1 designation in November of 2015. This designation is only given to fire departments in the United States that meet the highest standards of response capabilities.
