Fire Department

The Montrose Fire Department was established in 1881 from members of the community seeing a need for a Fire Department and rescue services. The Fire Department was reorganized in 1930. The original members were made up of the community and still are today. Currently the Montrose Fire Department serves an approximate area of 45 square miles and an approximate population of 6,000 people in the City of Montrose and portions of Franklin, Marysville and Woodland Townships.

The Montrose Fire Department currently has 28 active firefighters. The Montrose Fire Department leadership team includes the Fire Chief, Assistant Fire Chief, and three Captains. 

Each firefighter is trained and state certified to a minimum requirement of Firefighter I and II and MN State Emergency Medical Services Regulatory Board Certified as First Responder or EMT. Many Firefighters choose additional training such as state certifications in Hazardous Materials Technician, Fire Instructor and Fire Officer. We also have several Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics.
