The St. Cloud Fire Department conducts both fire prevention and suppression activities from five fire stations. The main station, located at 101 10th Avenue North, serves as the department’s headquarters station and provides space for the Prevention Division and administration, in addition to housing full-time suppression crews.

Staff & Crews

The Fire Department operates with full-time suppression personnel. Fire suppression crews staff Stations 1, 2, 3 and 5 for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which allows for excellent response anywhere in the city.  Station 4, at the airport, is staffed on an "as needed" basis.

The Suppression Division responds to over 6,000 incidents per year. The Fire Department also provides hazardous materials incident coverage. The Chemical Assessment Team, by contract with the State of Minnesota, has primary coverage for approximately 10 counties in central Minnesota.
