1. Why does the emergency equipment run with lights and siren, and then just turn them off?
On occasion, the fire engine and / or ambulance will be driving with lights and sirens and then suddenly turn them off–perhaps only to turn into a parking lot or side street. Be assured that when this happens it means we have received information through our 911 dispatchers that the caller or incident is no longer a dire emergency. It is what we call “being cancelled”. Any or all of the apparatus may continue to drive to the call or perhaps some will return to the fire station.
2. Can I get my blood pressure checked at the fire station?
Yes. We offer this service free at the fire station. Please recognize that our personnel might be absent from the station due to emergency calls, fire inspections, or training activities.
3. You transported me to the hospital in an ambulance and I received a bill. Who do I call to discuss the bill?
We contract with Kettle Moraine Ambulance Billing for this service. Please contact them at 262.542.9699 for any questions regarding your bill.
Welcome to the Kettle Moraine Fire District
It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome you to the Village of Eagle website! The KMFD Officers are honored to serve with the men and women who take pride in being a part of the Kettle Moraine Fire District. Our firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) spend many hours away from their families throughout the month to ensure that they maintain a state of readiness.
KMFD responds out of one station centrally located in downtown Eagle and routinely provides mutual aid to six other neighboring communities (Dousman, Palmyra, East Troy, Troy Center, Mukwonago, and North Prairie).
We are a combination fire department consisting of one full time, several part time, and over thirty highly dedicated paid on call employees. The Fire Station is staffed during the day with one part-time paid FF/EMT from 6:00 am – 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday and 8:00 am – 4:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Our paid on call staffing respond from their home from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, 365 nights per year. The full time OIC staffs the station at a minimum, from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday thru Friday.
The department currently operates two Engines, two Ambulances (AEMT level), a Heavy Rescue, a Tender, a Brush truck, an off road UTV, and a staff vehicle.
In 2015 the department responded to 386 “opportunities for service,” including 287 requests for Emergency Medical Services and 99 additional fires and other requests for emergency services.
The mission of the Kettle Moraine Fire District is to provide the highest quality proactive and reactive “state of the art” fire service. This service shall include but not be limited to public education, inspections, fire prevention, EMS provider, training and suppression.
The Kettle Moraine Fire District will provide these services via the most cost effective method as governed by the Fire Commission and the Kettle Moraine Fire District officers.
• Recognize that we are here to serve the needs of the community and its citizens.
• Strive to provide the best service possible, in a professional and positive manner.
• Operate with a high sense of ethics, honesty, and integrity.
• Treat our citizens with respect, dignity, and fairness.
We are always looking for additional volunteer firefighters and EMTs! If you are interested, please stop in the fire station to inquire about the requirements. All equipment and training is provided for at no expense to you!
