Rittman Fire & Rescue is one of two divisions within the city’s Public Safety Services. We are responsible for providing fire suppression, pre-hospital emergency care and transport, as well as rescue services to the citizen’s of Rittman and the surrounding communities. Rittman Fire & Rescue works closely with the second division of Rittman’s Public Safety Services, the Rittman Police Department. We work together to keep the City of Rittman a safe and healthy place to live, work, and play. It is our goal to provide the community with exceptional safety services using the most effective methods.
We have five core values: Leadership, Competence, Integrity, Safety, and Customer Service. Firefighters must provide leadership at every incident; must be highly competent to manage diverse emergencies during the worst of compressed time frames; must be honest and never breach their oath of integrity; must be safe and make it home to their families; and must be nice, which is the simplest definition of Customer Service.
