Woodbury Fire/EMS is responsible for responding to life safety emergencies within Woodbury and is also responsible for public safety education and fire prevention program and is considered to be a combination department. This means the city uses a combination of full-time, part-time and paid-on-call employees to respond to calls for service.  

Paid-on-call firefighter/EMTs are individuals who work a regular full-time job elsewhere and respond to emergencies in Woodbury when they are home. On-call employees are paid when they respond to fire, medical and rescue calls, and when they attend training and other required activities. All initial training is provided, including certification training for Firefighter I, Firefighter II and Emergency Medical Technician. Firefighter/EMTs also receive specialized training, as well as continuing education needed to maintain primary certification.
