Today, MGFD consists of Fire Chief Michael Linton who is supported by local volunteer personnel. There are two MGFD stations equipped with the latest technology including WIFI and satellite connectivity, and emergency generator power supply should land-based communications and power fail. MGFD operates a Type III 1998 International Model 15 Brush Engine, A Type IV Ford F-550 with 4-wheel drive capabilities equipped with standard fire suppression equipment.

The Department, like most today in the United States, is a non-profit organization and maintains equipment and supplies through donations and grants that must stretch to cover ever mounting service costs. We are gracious to accept any donation to the Department, and deeply appreciate all the help we have received over the years. We again applaud our volunteers, the men and women who sacrifice so much for our protection.
