The Micanopy Fire Rescue Department (MFRD) was established in 1976 and is located at 704 NE Cholokka Blvd., next to Town Hall. The Department is staffed 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365
days/year with a minimum of 2 Florida State Certified Firefighters/EMT's and/or Firefighter/Paramedics operating under the direction of the current Fire Chief, Jesse Modican.  

MFRD is a Basic Life Support (BLS)/Fire Response unit that responds to approximately 500 calls per year ranging from structure fires, brush fires, vehicle fires, motor vehicle and pedestrian
accidents, extrications, hazmat incidents, hazardous conditions, medical, and trauma calls. MFRD serves as District
64 (changing from District 26 in October 2017) and is the primary response station
for the incorporated Town of Micanopy, as well as a fifty-three square mile portion of Alachua County providing first response service for approximately 10,000 rural residents who make their homes
here.  MFRD also falls under the Waccasassa district of the Florida Forest Service and provides fire protection for a large area of land comprised of scrubs, forest, agricultural acreage (including
timber), grasslands, and undeveloped wetlands all located within the fifty-three square mile response area.
