Our History

 Fire Truck Circa 1930
The history of the Clark County Fire Department dates back more than 50 years. It is both rich and colorful from the days of the El Rancho Vegas Hotel and Casino fire to the unforgettable MGM Grand inferno that changed the way fire departments responded to high-rise fires forever.

In these pages are stories that recount the bravery and dedication of the department's personnel. We hope you learn things about people whose lives made Las Vegas more than a gambling destination. And we hope you learn a little more about Clark County and what has made it such an interesting and amazing slice of American culture.
