Fire Department

On behalf of the Mountain Grove Fire Department, I would like to personally welcome you to our website. The Mountain Grove Fire Department is a combination department staffed with a full time fire chief, captain and two lieutenants. The other personnel of the department consist of 22 paid per call firefighters. The Mountain Grove Fire Department provides several services to the community. Some of these services consist of fire suppression, emergency medical first responders, auto extrication, and hazmat response at the operations level. The City of Mountain Grove  currently has an ISO rating of a 4 inside the City of Mountain Grove and an ISO rating of 6 within 5 miles of the city.

The Mountain Grove Fire Department provides public fire prevention training upon request. This training includes fire safety and fire extinguisher training. We also provide fire inspection and free smoke detectors with installation. The Mountain Grove Fire Department is continually striving to insure that every residential home in our coverage area has a working smoke detector.
Community support of the Mountain Grove Fire Department receives, is phenomenal. We greatly appreciate the support from our community and try to repay the community through different programs such as sponsoring the Skyview State School at Christmas time for the past 8 years. We also have raised money for the Unique Services here in Mountain Grove so their workers can be sent the Special Olympics. When hurricane Harvey devastated Houston Texas and the surrounding areas, the Mountain Grove Fire Department took donations and sent a trailer load of supplies to the area. These are only a few of the efforts in trying to repay our community for their support.

You may contact the department by phone at (417) 926-4445 or   e-mail  or

We welcome input from our community that could provide us with information to better serve you. If you are in the area of 301 S. Morris St. or 1705 N. Main St. stop by and see us, look at the equipment and ask questions. 
In closing I would like to once again thank you for visiting our website and do not hesitate to contact the fire department with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Mark Bushong
