Fire Department

The fire personnel serving the City of Auburn have one focus: protecting what you value. In the event of a fire, medical emergency, vehicle accident, natural disaster or other emergency, we do everything we can to protect the people and property involved. Staffed 24 hours a day, our career and volunteer firefighters operate out of two strategically located stations.

Station 1

  • 4553 County Road 35 (just south of SR 8)
  • Home to two engines, a tender, ladder truck, and squad and rehab vehicles

Station 2

  • 902 South Grandstaff Drive (corner of Grandstaff and 15th streets)
  • Command staff offices and training facility
  • Home to an engine, ladder truck and brush truck

Fire Prevention and Inspections

Fire prevention is also one of the primary functions of the Auburn Fire Department. Our state and city fire codes were established for the sole purpose of fire prevention and life safety in the event of a fire. These codes are enforced through yearly inspections of public buildings, as well as inspections of new buildings prior to opening. Inspections are also carried out on new home builds and at the request of owners.

If you have any questions regarding fire prevention and inspections, please contact Division Chief Ryan Shambaugh at 260-925-8240.



Taxpayers have the ability to view budget notices in one central online location at BudgetNotices.IN.Gov. A new email subscription option is provided to taxpayers to stay informed of submissions by their local units. Taxpayers will be able to view all local government units in DeKalb county, search by their address, or use an interactive map tool. This website has been designed to promote the importance of budget notices and the role that they play in the daily lives of Indiana taxpayers. Taxpayers that do not have Internet access or have difficulties with the website may contact the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance at (888) 739-9826 and request a paper copy of the notices for their local government units.
