Welcome to the Merced Fire Department! Proudly Serving Since 1873
Fire Chief Shawn Henry
Welcome from Fire Chief Shawn Henry
We strongly believe in community involvement, with 5 fire stations throughout the city, we have a presence in every neighborhood.
Our value to the community is measured by the service we can provide. Every day, our firefighters, who are also trained as Emergency Medical Technicians strive to provide the best emergency and medical services possible to the citizens of Merced.
Keeping Our Neighborhoods Safe In addition to our daily protection of life and property, the Merced Fire Department is committed to making Merced prepared for any emergency. We’re accomplishing this through additional training for our firefighters, Hazardous Materials, Water and Specialized Technical Rescue teams. We have also formed regional partnerships with other fire departments to strengthen resources during an emergency.
