Fire Department

A Message from the Chief

Thank you for your interest in the Mazomanie Fire Department.  Our department is made up of exceptional men and women who are committed to providing the highest level of service to the community as possible. Our fire and rescue emergency services are augmented by many support personnel that keep the department moving forward smoothly. It is a coordinated team effort that makes our mission successful. We understand that not everyone is cut out for climbing ladders and pulling hoses. If you have talents outside of firefighting, such as equipment or grounds maintenance, administrative assistance, fundraising, grant writing, public education and you are interested in volunteering some time, we would love to hear from you.

About the Mazomanie Fire Department

Founded in 1866, the members of the Mazomanie Fire Department continue to carry on the tradition of volunteerism started by our founders. The department ideally consists of between 25 and 30 members all holding a minimum of State Certified Firefighter 1. Many have gone on to complete Certified Firefighter II, Certified Pumper and Aerial and Fire Officer I and II. Our membership consists of both men and women from many different walks of life. Many of our members also volunteer with District One Emergency Medical Service, and some maintain joint membership in other departments close to where they work or live outside of Mazomanie. The Mazomanie Fire Department responds to approximately 75 calls per year, ranging from helping with lock-outs, to motor vehicle accidents, to structure fires.

Our primary coverage area is the Village of Mazomanie, but we also respond into the Town of Mazomanie for structure fires and motor vehicle accidents under a first response agreement.

The Mazomanie Fire Department is an ISO Class 3 department and provides a full range of fire suppression, rescue, prevention and education services to the community. The fire department shares its station at 133 Crescent Street with the Mazomanie Police Department, and the Mazomanie Village Office.
