About Us

The Verona Fire Department is a suburban combination Fire Department located on the southwest side of the City of Madison the State Capital of Wisconsin and the second largest city in the state.  The Verona Fire Department is operated by the City of Verona in Dane County Wisconsin.  The Verona Fire Department provides fire and rescue services to a population of approximately 14,000 residents and covers 32 square miles out of one station.  In addition, we respond and assist Fitch-Rona EMS Paramedics on EMS calls.

Prior to January 1, 2014, the Department operated as a Fire District owned by both the City of Verona and the Town of Verona until the Fire District was dissolved by both parties and the City of Verona began operating the Fire Department and providing servce to the Town of Verona under a long term contract.

The personnel makeup of the Department is as follows:
