The Monroe Township Fire Department, established in 1949, is a volunteer organization committed to serving the citizens of Henryville and Underwood of Monroe Township in northern Clark County, Indiana. We provide fire suppression, vehicle rescue, EMT/First-Responder services, swift water rescue, and rope rescue. Additionally, we serve the community by hosting events, participating in fire prevention and youth education, school tours and demonstrations, boy scout tours and demonstrations, and we are available 24/7 to assist our citizens in any way possible.

We survived the March 2nd 2012 F4 Tornado.

Our motto is "At Your Service Since 1949", and we strive to live up to it. We are the firefighters of Monroe Township, and we hope this website allows you to learn about what we do and who we are. Feel free to contact the officers or administration anytime should you have a need, question, or concern.
