Welcome to Middletown, NY FD
Middletown Fire Department was proud to celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2009.

Since 1859, the Middletown Fire Department has efficiently and effectively carried out its charge to prevent and extinguish fires and protect the lives of the residents and visitors of our community and to preserve their property.

The Department now safeguards a population of 25,400 people living within Middletown’s five-mile square area.

The MFD now answers well over a 1,100 calls a year; these include structure and brush fires, motor vehicle accidents, emergency medical service and rescue calls, and a variety of public service requests such as flooded cellars and, very occasionally, the legendary cat in the tree.

The average MFD response time for Middletown calls is less than 4 minutes, markedly better than the national average. The MFD also gives and receives additional emergency help and support through mutual aid arrangements with neighboring communities.

The Middletown Fire Department is a member of the Orange County Mutual Aide Battalion System in Battalion One along with Circleville FD, Howells FD, Mechanicstown FD, Otisville FD, Pocatello Fire Company, Silver Lake FD and
Washington Heights FD.
