About Plymouth Fire Department

PFD Patch

Plymouth Fire Department (PFD) is a single entity that provides fire, rescue, emergency medical services (EMS), and all other emergency services to both the city and town of Plymouth, Wisconsin. Fire Chief Denis Fellows is the lone full-time employee. All other department members are 'paid per call', with minimal compensation for time spent during emergencies and training. This means that when PFD is dispatched to an incident, any available members respond to the station from their homes, places of work, or wherever they may be. The department has two assistant chiefs and six captains which comprise the leadership team under the full-time Fire Chief.

Orange Cross Ambulance service is the primary EMS provider for the city and town of Plymouth. However, the fire department also maintains an ambulance service licensed at the Advanced EMT level, which is placed on stand-by when all Orange Cross units are busy. Our ambulance is also used at incidents to provide care for emergency responders. About half of our members are licensed Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs).
