The Fire Department instituted new targets for response times for fire suppression and emergency medical calls in urban, suburban and rural contexts. The target response times are six minutes for urban areas, eight minutes for suburban areas and 10 minutes for rural areas. Rural areas are those in Fire District 34, which is served by the Redmond Fire Department and is outside city limits. In 2015 responses met target response times as shown in the table below.
