What to Expect

Our History

The Village of Maryville first established a fire department in October 1904 as a volunteer fire suppression service.  On October 4, 1905 the Maryville Fire Department was established.  Today, the Village continues to provide not only fire suppression service, but also Emergency Medical Services, rescue services, fire prevention education and inspections, and response to hazardous materials Incidents. The department is served by a combination of more than 30 paid volunteers and three full-time, career  firefighter / paramedics. The department protects over 10,000 residents in an eight-square mile area, including the Village of Maryville and the unincorporated surrounding fire protection district, a separate governing body.  ​ The department operates out of one station located at 300 N. Donk Ave. utilizing; 1 Aerial Truck, 2 Pumper's, 1 Rescue Unit, 2 Advanced Life Support Paramedic ambulances, and a staff/utility vehicle.   To further extend the Department’s resources and capabilities, the Village has joined and signed into "Mutual Aid" agreements with the Madison County Fireman’s Association and MABAS division 35. This allows the Department to call upon other Madison County Fire Departments and other local departments to assist at larger scale incidents and provide additional resources. The Department and Village also participate in the Madison County Hazardous Materials Response Team through the Madison County Emergency Management Agency to assist in the mitigation of Hazardous Materials incidents.
