The dedicated individuals that volunteer their time to training and emergency response.  These individuals under general direction of Captain Jim Dulcich have provided the excellent staffing necessary for MPUD to provide emergency response to properties within the district as well as aid agreements outside of MPUD.

ISO Public Protection Class 4 Rating

The Insurance Services Office (ISO) collects and evaluates information from communities on their structure fire suppression capabilities.  The Public Protection Classification (PPC) is rated primarily through the evaluation of needed fire flows, receiving and handling fire alarms, fire department equipment, staffing and water supply.  ISO analyzes the relevant data and assigns a PPC number from 1 to 10.  Class 1 represents an exemplary fire suppression program and class 10 indicates the fire suppression program does not meet ISO’s minimum criteria. 


MPUD has been notified that effective April 1, 2020 the Districts fire protection classification will change from class 3 to class 4!


The MPUD Fire Department is still desperately in need of additional volunteer/paid call staffing to continue the professional and safe operation of the MPUD Fire Protection System.  Contact MPUD for an application at 4992 7th Street or print an application from this site if you can help in keeping this important public service operational.
