Fire Station 10 is located on the north side of the city at 1517 Troy Drive. The station houses an engine crew and an ambulance.
The station began operations in 1962. It was formerly used as a fallout shelter for the community.

It carries a full complement of advanced life support medicine and equipment including a defibrillator, oxygen, and immobilization gear.

Station 10's first-due territory serves the neighborhoods throughout Madison's north side and ranges from the Kraft/Oscar Mayer area through Warner Beach and Park towards Token Creek and Waunakee. Off-duty, many personnel further contribute to the community in local, national, and international volunteer service. It is their diverse backgrounds and skills that lend to the success and unity of the Station 10 crew's daily service delivery.
The crew has adopted a logo with a firefighting Mallard to note the station's proximity to the home of the Madison Mallards baseball team.
