The city of Monmouth is a diverse community, with industry, commercial businesses, and the home to Monmouth College, a private 4 year college with approximately 1200 students. Our goal is to provide the citizens of Monmouth a professional service that will mitigate any hazard in our community. There are 15 career fire fighters and a chief. The 15 career firefighters are assigned to 1 of 3 shifts. Each shift has one Assistant Chief, one Captain, and three Fire Fighters. We work a 24/48 schedule, with the chief working a 40 hour week. The career members are augmented by 10 volunteer fire fighters who are on call. In addition to fighting fires, our members are trained to respond to auto accidents, high and low angle rescues, hazardous material incidents, as well as emergency medical calls.
