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, communications and dispatch, and administration, in addition to housing full-time suppression crews.

Staff & Crews
The Fire Department operates with both full-time and paid on-call suppression personnel. Fire suppression crews staff all five stations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which allows for excellent response anywhere in the city.

The Suppression Division responds to approximately 4,000 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.
