Welcome to Monticello Fire & Rescue
Proudly serving the Monticello Area since 1892 with Fire and First Responder services. Our service area is 80+ Sq. Miles with about 3500 total population. We are primarily a rural farming area. Our department will average 110 - 140 calls a year with about 70 % being First Response calls. We do not run a ambulance out of our station; instead we rely on the surrounding EMS units for transport and continuing patient care. We average about 32-36 members with over half of these being either Certified First Responders or EMT'S. We currently have a ISO rating of 3 for the Village and a class 6/10 rating for the rural area.
A Reminder to Residents:
-Please check your Fire Numbers!!
They need to be placed by the front entrance and clearly visible from the street. Rural residences should have an undamaged and clearly visible Fire Number near the entrance to the property. Numbers on mailboxes are not enough, nor are worn/faded/damaged numbers. Clearly visible Fire Numbers and addresses greatly improve response times to emergencies.

Engine 2 has arrived!
January 26th, 2019: Monticello Fire puts into service its newest addition to the truck fleet. A 1999 Pierce Dash Engine has replaced our previous Engine 2, a 1989 Custom Fire Engine. The department formed a committee in January of 2018 consisting of Fire Chief Kevin Komprood, Asst Chief Shane Luchsinger, Asst Chief Jason Eyler, Captain Ron Blumer, Firefighter Casey Klossner, and Firefighter Brian Grossen. The committee determined a new truck (as a department would traditionally buy) would cost approximately $500,000.00. The 3 members of the Fire District (The Village of Monticello, Town of Washington, and The Town of Mt. Pleasant) had not set aside any funds and preferred not to borrow additional funds. Luckily the Truck Committee learned that the Village of Williams Bay was selling an Engine with the specifications the Fire Department wanted: low miles, a Waterous 1500 gpm top mount pump, 1000 gal. poly water tank, 35 ft. ground ladder, diesel generator, and storage of at least 3000 ft of fire hose. The Fire Department intends to get 12 more years of service out of this truck to give members of the Fire District time to set aside funds for the next truck purchase . Monticello Fire District has $124,000.00 total into this truck (including truck purchase price). Pierce upgraded pump components and lighting, Lakeside IH did the repainting, General Communications upgraded the radio equipment, and Thunder Valley updated the graphics.
