The City of Marshall Fire Department operates with a Director of Public Safety, eight career and 20 paid on-call firefighters. The department’s structure consists of the Director of Public Safety, Deputy Fire Chief, (3) Captains, (4) Fire Lieutenants, (20) firefighters, and (6) auxiliary firefighters. The Director handles all administrative operations. The Deputy Chief oversees all fire operations and is the Arson Investigator.
Throughout the year, firefighters are involved in various fire prevention activities which include the following: industrial and commercial fire inspections, fire safety programs for school children and our city resident smoke detector program which includes free detectors and batteries. Firefighters conduct tours of the department for school children and other groups who are learning about fire prevention and firefighting.
The Fire Department continues to improve operations. The City of Marshall has constructed a new facility in 2015. This station houses a medical squad, an engine, a rescue pumper and the department's original 1918 LaFrance fire truck. The Marshall Fire Department is very active in training within the organization to insure that all personnel are trained to handle emergency situations and improve firefighting skills. Firefighter training is conducted twice a month. The Fire Department's mission is to provide the most efficient and progressive fire service possible, making Marshall a safe community to live in, work in and visit. Fire Department personnel are committed to doing all that is possible to save lives and property through Fire prevention, education and training.
