Sioux Falls Fire Rescue (SFFR) includes North and South battalions. All members train on the new Public Safety Campus in northeast Sioux Falls. Everyone, except the division chief and a fire analyst, works a 24-hour schedule. They respond to medical calls, injury accidents, fires, rescue, and hazardous materials incidents and other emergencies. They also offer emergency medical services (EMS) education and other safety training for community members.
SFFR has agreements with specific counties to respond to incidents involving weapons of mass destruction and hazardous materials. In cooperation with the SD Office of Homeland Security, it also assists statewide in emergencies that exceed the capacity of local responders.
