Bloomington Fire Department

Proudly serving our citizens since 1947

The 120 members of the volunteer, paid-on-call Bloomington Fire Department respond to fire calls from six fire stations throughout the city. The average response time is 4.5 minutes. All firefighters wear pagers and their availability times vary so all calls are responded to all day, every day.

CenterPoint grant to be used for fire rescue tools

The City of Bloomington was recently awarded a $2,500 Community Partnership Grant from CenterPoint Energy. The grant will be used to purchase extraction tools for the Bloomington Fire Department.

Special programs for the public

The Bloomington Fire Department will install smoke detectors with batteries as well as check and change smoke detector batteries free of charge to qualified Bloomington residents. The Department will install a smoke detector for each level of the residence as needed. Fire personnel are available for detector installations, checks and battery changes. Appointments can be made by calling Roxy Markkanen or Lori Sarff at Station One, 952-563-4801.

Fire prevention activities

Fire prevention visits: The Bloomington Fire Department will present fire prevention programs to Bloomington schools, clubs, organizations and residents. Firefighters deliver information appropriate for children of all ages. Among the most popular programs are the Fire Safety House, truck visits, station tours, and Sparky the Fire Dog and Pluggie. These events allow children to come in contact with firefighters and see the gear, equipment and tools that are used to help residents of the city. Department members assist fourth-grade elementary school teachers with the Junior Fire Safety Program each winter. They also visit many block parties during National Night Out each August. To schedule a visit, please call Roxy Markkanen or Lori Sarff at Station One, 952-563-4801.
