Fire Department


Established in 1954, the Center Fire Department consists of roughly 30 volunteer members. When needed, firefighters are dispatched by the Outagamie 911 communications center through a paging system.

We provide a wide variety of services including:

  • Fire suppression
  • Vehicle extrication rescue
  • Fire safety education and prevention
  • Business fire and life safety inspections

As a department, we strive to serve the community’s fire and rescue needs through having an active membership, up-to-date equipment, and regular monthly training. Additionally, we work closely with the Center First Responders, Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department, and neighboring fire departments through mutual aid.

For other concerns or to notify us of large controlled burns, contact us at the number (920) 851-5864.
