Grimes Fire and Rescue Department

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.
