Fire Department

The Union City Fire Department maintains an ISO Class 4 rating.  The career department is based out of two fire stations providing fire, rescue, and emergency medical first responder service to over 11,000 citizens of Union City and another 6000 citizens in its rural fire protection district. The department protects 12 square miles of city and provides rural fire protection by subscription in 110 square miles of rural fire district.

Management is overseen by a Chief and two Staff personnel.  Three Captains and 24 line firefighters serve the community around the clock every second of every day.
