The Minneapolis Fire Department has about 414 firefighters assigned to 19 stations located throughout the City.
Each station responds to calls within its own response area and may assist in responding to calls within a larger district (there are five districts in the City).
The department's typical response to a reported Structure Fire is three engine companies (smaller trucks), one ladder company (larger trucks), one heavy rescue company and two battalion chiefs. Additional resources may be called in for multiple alarm fires.
Our goal is for the first company to arrive on scene within 5 minutes 90% of the time. Our current average response time is 3 minutes 52 seconds. In 2015 MFD responded to over 40,000 emergencies that number has been on an upward trend every year as the city's population increases..
