The Mission of the Monroe Charter Township Volunteer Fire Department is to serve the community by responding to all reported fires and medical emergencies, be it residential or business, and to provide mutual aid to the surrounding communities in accordance with established policies. We will always strive to limit the loss of life and property to the best of our ability, through education and available resources.
