Fire Department

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.
