Memphis Fire Department

Memphis Fire Department is a community volunteer fire department.   Our Fire Department consists of a dedicated group of first responders who balance their professional life with the life of a firefighter. 

The fire department has a long history of protecting our community, established on 1925, the Memphis Volunteer Fire Department began operations and was one of the first organized fire departments in our area. Since this time many changes have taken place over the years with technology, training and personnel. Instead of only fighting fires, we now do rescue work and are trained for medical responses and hazardous material situations. The responsibilities and expertise the department provides has expanded since the days of fighting fires only. Our mission though, remains the same “To protect life and property of the people of our community with the highest quality of service possible”. In order for us to serve you better, we ask that you make sure your address is clearly visible on your mailbox, house or on a green address sign.

Our department operates out of one station and we are paid-on-call, which means we do not live at the station, we only respond to calls when we are needed from home or work.   We generally staff about 24 members and respond to calls in the City of Memphis and 80 square mile service area with parts of Richmond, Wales, Riley, Columbus Townships. We respond to approximately 300 to 350 calls per year in both the city and the townships. We maintain an active Junior Fire Explorer post for youth ages 14 to 21 who are interested in learning about the firefighting profession.
