City of Madison Fire Rescue Capabilities
The City of Madison Fire Rescue has many capabilities and can provide many services that the average citizen of Madison or Madison County may not be aware of that include:
All career and part-time members of the fire department are Dual Certified Firefighter – EMT’s.
We respond to all reported types of fires in the City and into the County as per the Interlocal Agreement guidelines.
We respond to Hazardous Materials incidents in our area and the rest of the County when requested or needed.
We have also developed relationships with some of the surrounding counties that have Haz-Mat Teams that can be called upon for assistance when needed.
We respond to all reported vehicle accidents (other than in a parking lot, unless there are injuries) in the city and into the county according to the Interlocal Agreement between the City and County. We provide extrication services for Madison County EMS
In 2013 we started responding to Medical Calls in the city and into the county when dispatched or requested by Madison County EMS; we assist EMS if or when needed but we do not transport patients.
We respond to Medical Calls because we have trained EMTs on duty that can evaluate, stabilize and even start treatment on a patient prior to an ambulances arrival and then even after their arrival we can provide additional help if needed.
We can provide free Blood Pressure checks at the fire station when personnel are available during the daytime.
We have the ability to provide fire/safety education to businesses or community groups if or when requested which could include first aid, CPR or fire extinguisher training.
