Chandler, Arizona is a great place to live, work, and play.

Recently, the city has taken steps to become an accredited paramedical training center, allowing people to earn college credit by attending the Chandler Paramedic School. The 14-week academy was comprised of nine recruits from the Chandler Fire Department and 12 recruits from other fire departments in the Valley, including the Scottsdale Fire Department, the 26% Arizona Fire Medical Authority and the Tolleson Fire Department.
The city of Chandler also selected an architectural firm to complete the design of the expansion of Fire Station 2 in North Chandler. In addition to providing quality paramedical training opportunities, Chandler is also committed to protecting its citizens' rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. Just a week before the start of Pride Month, students who support the rights of LGBTQ people organized a protest in Chandler to express their dissatisfaction with the lack of an anti-discrimination ordinance. The city took steps to ensure that citizens could exercise their right to freedom of expression through public demonstrations in the city without fear of repercussions. They facilitated these demonstrations to take place safely and legally, without harming or endangering people or property. The city of Chandler is dedicated to providing its citizens with quality services and opportunities.
Through its efforts to facilitate public demonstrations and its commitment to providing quality paramedical training opportunities, it is clear that Chandler is a great place for citizens to live, work and play.
