The Grimes Fire and Rescue Department proudly protects about 9000 people living in an area of approximately 40 square miles. We operate out of one station that protects a primarily residential area. Our department is a combination fire department with four full-time staff and 25 paid-on-call staff. We also employ one fulltime fire chief who is shared with the City of Johnston, our neighbors to the east.
Grimes is a northwestern suburb of the Des Moines metro area (Des Moines is the state capital of Iowa). Our service area includes west-central Polk County, including the town of Grimes, along with a small area in east-central Dallas County.
