About Us


Our Mission

The Mission of the Mt. Angel Fire District is to protect lives, property, and the environment through emergency safety services. This is accomplished through fire prevention and suppression, public education, hazardous materials incident mitigation, emergency medical services, and disaster management. These services are provided to the highest possible level within the resources allocated by its governing body.


We Need YOU!

In large and small communities throughout the United States, volunteer firefighters fulfill a number of important duties. Along with putting out structure fires, volunteer firefighters respond to car accidents, natural disasters and other emergencies. According to the National Fire Protection Association, in the United States, almost 70 percent of all firefighters serve in a volunteer role. In addition to helping our community in emergency situations, you will become part of a family oriented team! MAFD is a well respected organization made up of "can do" people.  


Message From Chief Jim Trierweiler

Welcome to the Mt. Angel Fire District’s newly updated website. I hope you find this website useful and informative. We value our communities input and suggestions and invite you to share your thoughts and input on ways to improve this site to better serve our community.

  The Mt. Angel Fire District is a force of approximately 36 volunteers, 5 part time employees,  and a Fire Chief. I am very proud of our members. I have watched them perform heroic deeds and monumental acts of kindness & compassion. Time and time again our members just indicate, “I was just doing my job and what I was trained to do.”  Each and every member contributes selflessly with honor & integrity to this organization and community we serve. Many have done so over 10 & 20+ years!
