Your Monroe Fire Department At Work

The Monroe Fire Department responds to many EMS calls daily, providing both basic and advanced life support first response, non-transporting service.

Monroe Firefighters respond to a house fire. 


A team of firefighters are using a 2 1/2 inch fire attack line to deliver large volumes of water to extinguish a major exposure. 


Handling a high-volume water delivery through a 2 1/2 inch fire attack line can be very strenuous, especially within a long-term attack.  Multiple firefighters are sometimes needed to help handle the reaction from the water pressure.

Monroe Firefighters are using exterior firefighting technique on this house fire. 


In situations like this where the house is fully involved in fire upon arrival, one of the primary goals is to extinguish the fire while insuring it does not cause damage or spread to neighboring structures. 

After extinguishing an outside paper storage fire, Monroe Firefighters, still in full protective gear and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), regroup for another assignment.
