The Monmouth Fire Department serves Monmouth, North Monmouth and the surrounding communities in Central Maine. We operate out of two stations with a fleet of five trucks (Three engines, a heavy rescue and a tank truck). The department is comprised of roughly 50 volunteers including our members, juniors and auxillary group. We have served the community since 1903 with a motto of "Lives and Property First".
A camp fire can be a great way to relax and enjoy time outdoors, but if not handled carefully it can turn into a dangerous situation quickly. A single ember can start a brush fire if the conditions are right.
Check you local laws on camp fires and burning permits
Always get a permit when required!
Make sure you have the necessary water & tools available to extinguish.
Don't hesitate to call 911 if the fire gets out of control.
Check the local fire conditions before having any outdoor fires.
More information on obtaining a permit can be found here: Fire Permits
The Monmouth Fire Department is pleased to announce the launch of the new Home Safety Inspection Program! This is a free public service provided to all Monmouth homeowners.
The intent is to do a thorough walkthrough of your home and identify any safety hazards, as well as discuss good safety practices you may already have in place, to ensure the safest environment possible for you and your family.
Some of the safety concerns we look for are well placed and operable smoke detectors, electrical hazards, clear and unobstructed exits, proper heating appliance operation, and much more. None of the recommended changes are mandatory, but are recommended for your safety.
To schedule your free safety inspection or to answer any questions you may have, please contact Lieutenant Mike Mullin at 513-6072. You can also leave a message at the center station at 933-4545 and someone will promptly return your call as soon as possible.

Our department could not exist without the volunteers from the community. If you live in Monmouth or North Monmouth and are interested in the fire department, we welcome you to stop by at our meetings and trainings. We meet/train every Thursday at 6:30 PM at the Center Station on Main St. If you are at least 18 years old you can apply to be a volunteer firefighter. Those between the ages of 14-18 can apply to join our Junior Firefighter program and earn school credit while training with us.
