A message from the McMinnville Fire Department Chief:

On behalf of all of the members of the McMinnville Fire Department, I would like to welcome you to our website. The dedicated men and women of our organization take great honor in ensuring the health and safety of our award winning community.   It is our commitment to residents and visitors that we respond to all requests for service in a fast, efficient, and caring manner. We take great pride in developing and strengthening our abilities to serve you better.

 Since 1874 the McMinnville Fire Department has been here to serve the citizens. The organization continues to adapt and evolve to meet the challenges of providing a wide spectrum of emergency services to a diverse and changing community. Our dedicated Fire Department staff work cohesively with the other city and neighboring departments to collectively make McMinnville a safer place to live, work, and play.

As the Fire Chief, I take it as my personal responsibility to make McMinnville as safe as possible through a commitment to fire suppression, emergency medical services, fire prevention, public education, and specialized rescue responses. I am proud to lead the professional, compassionate, and respected men and women of the McMinnville Fire Department.
