The Logistics Section supports the mission of the Fire Department by providing supplies and equipment for fire suppression, emergency medical response, haz-mat response, and technical rescue to 10 engine companies, 3 ladder companies, 1 rescue company, 1 ARFF company, 2 battalions, and all divisions. This support enables the department to respond and mitigate all emergencies effectively. Logistics is also responsible for maintaining and supplying 191 employees with uniforms, protective clothing, supplies, and materials, such as helmets, gloves, boots, turnout coats and pants.

Logistics is also responsible for management of facility maintenance for 10 fire stations and associated structures, including household and office necessity.

Logistics constantly strives to enhance its capabilities and service through the use of technology; including electronic submission of requests for supplies, equipment, materials, and repairs to facilities. This allows the Logistics Section to respond quickly to requests.

Repairs to self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), nozzles, and hydraulic tools are repaired or coordinated by Logistics.
