Menominee Fire Department

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Menominee Fire Department is to save lives and protect property through emergency medical service, fire and rescue response, and fire prevention. We respond immediately when any member of our community needs help with professional, effective, and compassionate service.

Fire Prevention

The Menominee Fire Department has been actively engaged in teaching fire prevention to our community. We work with families and schools by providing station tours and teaching with our fire safety house. We encourage families to talk about fire safety in their homes and to have a plan in place. We also work with businesses and industries by doing building tours and teaching fire extinguisher classes. During tours, we are able to work with businesses on how to maintain their business while taking proper fire precautions. We also participate in some drills such as disaster plans. We provide the best fire practices to everyone in our community in order to prevent loss of life or property from fire.

Additional Information

The Menominee Fire Department was formed in 1871, shortly after the great Chicago and Peshtigo Fires, for the sole purpose of saving lives and property from the damages of fire. Today, while still responding to fires, the Department has expanded to include a wider range of services that goes much deeper than fire suppression.

The Menominee Fire Department has Automatic Aid agreements with the neighboring City of Marinette and the townships of Menominee & Ingallston.

The department responds automatically to emergencies in those communities.

The Fire Department is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by 12 full-time firefighters and 1 full-time fire chief. Each firefighter is assigned to one of three crews with 4 firefighters on each crew. Each crew works a 24-hour shift providing 24 hours on and 48 hours off rotation.

On average the Fire Department responds to 772 calls each year.
