MTFD Support Services is a vital part of the department. Based on the "Ladies Auxillary" of the past, these dedicated people provide drinks and food to the firefighters at scenes and training, assist with organizing special events like parades and fundraisers. If you are interested in serving your community through the fire department, but not interested in fighting fires, this may be for you. Contact MTFD Headquarters (812-294-1738)
Thanks to a generous community, MTFD firefighters and families, and many long hours of work, the 2014 WHAS CRUSADE FOR CHILDREN is successfully in the books. Monroe Firefighters raised over $21,000 again this year; an impressive feat for a small community.
Many people have asked why MTFD firefighters were not on WHAS TV this year. On Crusade Day, Sunday Morning June 8th, before we were to load-up and head to Louisville, Monroe Firefighters were dispatched to an MVA in the forestry. A vehicle went over a steep embankment near the Fire Tower. It took several hours to treat the patients and transport, recover the vehicle and clear the scene. After that, Engine 2022 had a flat tire when leaving the scene and that caused another delay. Additionally, a few of our firefighters were out of town or committed to family events on the usual Crusade Day. To ensure we had enough firefighters in the district to provide fire protection for our residents, we were unable to attend the Crusade Events at WHAS 11 Studio this year.
