Established in 1928, the Middlefield Fire Department serves the Village of Middlefield with 1 Rescue Pumper, 2 Combination Pumper/Tankers, 1 75ft Ladder Truck, 1 spare Pumper; for use when one of the front line apparatus is unavailable, 1 Combination Air/Haz Mat Truck, 1 Utility/Pickup truck and 1 GMC Yukon Chief/Officer’s vehicle.

Fire Station 1 is staffed with 3 Firefighters during the daytime hours and 4 Firefighters during the night time hours. The increase in manning during the night hours is due to the statistically higher life safety hazard to our residents in dwelling fires which occur at night – when most people are asleep. Off duty Firefighters are called in when additional manpower is needed due to a large incident or multiple simultaneously occurring incidents.

The Middlefield Fire Department is rated as an ISO (Insurance Services Office) Class 3 in the Village. Our average response time to incidents in the Village is approximately 2 minutes and 28 seconds.
