The City of Union Fire & Rescue Department is a combination part-time/paid-on-call department. The Department operates from one station with two advanced life support medics (ambulances), one seven-man engine/tanker, and one four-man engine. All members are cross-trained and, at a minimum, have Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Basic and Firefighter Level I certification.
Our station, known as Station 81, located on Martindale Road in the center of Union, is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a minimum of three firefighter/EMTs. Our in-house crew responds to both medic and fire calls. Additional responses are supplemented by paid-on-call personnel and mutual-aid agreements with neighboring communities. In addition to emergency services, the Union Fire Department provides several non-emergency services, including: Home Safety Inspections, Fire Extinguisher Training, CPR, First-Aid, and Babysitter Training, Fire Safety Demonstrations and Smoke Detector Battery Changing Assistance. If you would like information about any of these services, please call Chief Mike Blackwell at 937-836-8624.
