On behalf of the men and women of the MCFRS, I am proud to introduce you to one of the largest combination (career and volunteer personnel) fire-rescue agencies in the nation. We are located just north and west of our nation’s capitol protecting over one million residents in 500 square miles.

As a world class, all hazards, fire-rescue agency our programs are keenly focused to:

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue partners with our neighboring jurisdictions and with other Washington Metropolitan Council of Governments (MWCOG) agencies to maximize our resources and preparedness initiatives to best serve our citizens during any emergency. As sworn public safety professionals, we take great pride in the role we share to assure that our streets and neighborhoods are safe for our citizens.

If you are a current county resident; a first time visitor to our area, or contemplating a move to the national capitol region, I am confident you will find Montgomery County to be a safe, vibrant community where we take great pride in our dedication to public safety, education of our children, and community resiliency.
