About Us

The Hartland Fire Department has 56 members, both firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). The Department is an Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance service licensed by the State of Wisconsin as a Paramedic Service. This goal was reached in March of 2018. The Fire Department has four full-time employees and a part time administrative assistant. All operations are operated out of one station located at 150 Lawn Street. The station is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by dedicated professionals. The station staffing is subsidized by paid on-call members who respond to the station during an emergency.

Department History

The Hartland Volunteer Fire Department was organized in November 1893. Monies used to buy equipment, vehicles, and gear were collected by fire contracts and raised through dances, an annual picnic, and donations. In 1958 the Village of Hartland took over the Fire Department as the governing body, and to this day all equipment, buildings, vehicles, and wages are paid for by the Village budget process.

When the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) was added to the department in November 1978, the Volunteer Firefighters and EMTs then became paid on-call members responding to fire and rescue calls.

The Fire Department is celebrating its 125 anniversary in 2018.

The Hartland Fire Department is rich in history and tradition.
