We have one Daytime Duty Company that is largely comprised of employees of the Elm Grove Department of Public Works and any other officer or firefighter that is available during the day (defined as M-F 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM). All available personnel are encouraged to respond to fire calls.

In addition we have three Duty Companies that are on duty on a three day rotating schedule from 6:00 PM to 7:00 AM. If the duty company is Saturday or Sunday, the company is on duty for the entire 24 hour period. The department objective is to have at least 10 personnel assigned to each numbered duty company.

We currently have 45 members.
