Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -A fire science website mentions the Fargo Fire Department as one of the best in the nation.
Online Fire Science Degree.org ranked Fargo in its top 100 departments.
Chief Steve Dirksen says he hopes the designation will make Fargo more attractive for those looking for careers in fire science.
The website specifically commended the department's work to get fire safety tips online.
Steve Dirksen, Fargo Fire Chief: “Prevention is our number one goal. If we can prevent a fire, prevent an accident, prevent this fall or whatever. It's better than having us respond in an emergency situation."
The Minneapolis and Rochester, Minnesota fire departments also made the list.
