City of Madera

Department Overview

The Madera City Fire Department is administered by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) pursuant to a cooperative fire protection agreement. Policy direction remains with the Madera City Council and all permanent Fire Department staff are CAL FIRE employees.

Who We Are

The Department provides a multitude of emergency and non-emergency services to the community. Services include: fire prevention and suppression, emergency medical assistance, rescue, public assistance, fire menace standby, safety inspections, and review of building plans for compliance with applicable codes and ordinances.

The two City fire stations, located at 317 North Lake and 200 South Schnoor, are staffed 24 hours a day. The Fire Department staffs two fire engines and one mini-pumper.  One reserve fire engine is maintained and staffed as needed by the Volunteer Fire Fighters, who protect the City in a team effort along with the paid force. The devotion of these individuals to their twice monthly drills, and responses to emergencies at any time, make them America’s true heroes.
