Under the direction of Deputy Chief Bryan Baumgartner, the Operations Division of the Medford Fire Department responds to calls for service within the community and beyond. Most of these calls are for true emergencies such as structure fires, medical emergencies, vehicle accidents, hazardous material incidents, and other life threatening situations. The Operations Division also responds to less serious situations and stands ready to support local residents in times of need. The Firefighters and Paramedics of Operations Division are committed to making a positive difference in our community.
Medford Fire's five strategically-located fire stations operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Stations are located across Medford, in the north, south, east and west sections of the city. Understanding that time is often the difference between life and death, our goal is to reach callers within 6 ½ minutes in Medford's urban area and within 10 minutes in rural areas, 90% of the time. (Response time is calculated from the time 911 is dialed.) We respond to calls in traditional fire engines, a ladder truck, medically-equipped wildland units, and other specialized vehicles.
We welcome opportunities to share our passion with the community. We have suspended station tours and ride alongs due to Covid 19 restricitons, but we look forward to resuming these services as soon as possible. Please feel free to engage with our fire crews when you meet them in community.
