Fire Department Registration

Division of Fire and Life Safety Director's Office manages the registration of local fire and emergency response agencies in Alaska. Alaska state regulations require that every local organization that is performing duties as a fire department be registered with the Division of Fire and Life Safety.

In order to be a registered fire department a fire department must have submitted the following:

  • Enabling Authority - A copy of their enabling authority document and
  • Response Areas/Boundaries - A description of the boundaries or response areas of the department. This can include either a map or a general description of the limits of the response. Also a description under what circumstances and under whose authority the department will respond outside those boundaries. If the response area is within or overlaps another agencies response area a Mutual Aid or Memorandum of Agreement between those two agencies is required and
  • Annual Summary Report - A summary report must be completed annually by using information from the previous calendar year and
  • Membership Roster - Fire Departments are required under the registration process to forward a current list of all members. Any changes in membership must be sent within 30 days of these changes taking place and
  • ANFIRS - In order for a fire department to continue their registration status, they must report every fire and fire related incident Division of Fire and Life Safety monthly per 13 AAC 52.020. The fire department may loose their registered status if they fail report.
