Fire Station 2

Station 2 is a single-company station located on Madison's west side.

The firehouse was built in 1979 to accommodate the growing west side of Madison.

It is staffed daily with four firefighters and two firefighter/paramedics who work 24-hour shifts.

Station 2 houses Ladder Company 2 and Medic Unit 2.


  • Ladder 2 – a 2010 Pierce Quantum 105-foot aerial ladder with a 1500 gallons-per-minute fire pump and a complement of ground ladders, fire hose, tools, and extrication equipment.
  • Medic 2 – a 2017 Ford E-450 with a Braun Advanced Life Support patient compartment. It carries a full complement of advanced life support medicine and equipment including a defibrillator, oxygen, and immobilization gear. To aide in patient and paramedic safety, it operates with a Stryker power-loading cot.
  • Car 42 – a 2014 Ford F250 Utility Truck, assigned to the west district Captain.
