Founded in 1837, the Monroe Fire Department provides the highest level of fire, rescue, emergency medical and all hazard response to those who live, work, and play within our community. We accomplish this through our organizational values of professionalism, public outreach, training, education, fire prevention, incident management and continuous improvement.

Operating out of two stations, the Department covers a 10.99 square-mile district with a population of nearly 20,700. Each station is strategically located in areas that provide the best coverage and response to the citizens we serve.

The Department consists of 18 career full time firefighter paramedics and 32 public safety officers who cover the department 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Those members operate two fully equipped Advanced Life Support Engines. . .

The Monroe Fire Department provides the highest level of emergency response. Our goal is to make our community a safer place for living, working and visiting.

The Department is proud to carry a Fire Suppression rating (formally known as ISO rating) of 4 inside the city. Learn about ISO rating online We have an Automatic Aid Agreement with Frenchtown Township and Monroe Township.
