Fire and Emergency Medical Services

“Through every disaster or crisis, our first responders from DFEMS have been at the frontline of our emergency response. We thank them and our law enforcement for working together and for the sacrifices they make each and every day.”

– Governor Ralph DLG. Torres

The Torres-Palacios administration intend to provide efficient and effective firefighting, fire protection, fire investigation, emergency medical services, specialized rescue, handling of hazardous material, and wildland firefighting services to persons and property in the CNMI. 

Governor Torres has been a longtime proponent of a government department dedicated to combatting fires, providing medical transportation and services, and rescue missions to protect life during times of distress and emergency. In 2014, when he was Senate President, he established the CNMI Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services to meet his priority of keeping the public safe from all hazards.  

During the ongoing CNMI COVID-19 response, first responders from the Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services, continue to provide medical transportation of patients and persons under investigation, as well as provide logistical support to the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force.
