  • Technical Rescue
  • Hazardous Material Response
  • Swiftwater Rescue
  • Explosives Response
The North Richland Hills Fire Department has partnered with other Northeast Tarrant County communities to form the Northeast Fire Department Association (NEFDA). It is through this partnership that we consolidate the strengths and resources of all member departments for the purpose of enhancing the service delivery to all of our respective customers across all jurisdictional boundaries. We accomplish this mission by providing our Fire Fighters with quality professional development training, sharing of resources, cooperative mutual responses, and a commitment to community safety.
