The Anoka-Champlin Fire Department (ACFD) is a combination department which means it employs both full-time and paid-on-call firefighters. The Fire Chief and three full-time firefighters make up the full-time staffing with the assistance of a part-time Fire Department Administrative Assistant. The City of Champlin is part of a Joint Powers Fire District that shares fire services with the City of Anoka. This Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) began in 1985.
The paid-on-call division consists of forty-four firefighters who respond to calls in each City. The Fire Department has two stations. Station No. 1 is located in Anoka and Station No. 2 is located in Champlin.
One of the most traditional Fire Departments in Minnesota the Anoka Fire Department was established in 1857 as the Protection Hook and Ladder company. Today ACFD is distinguished by its white vehicles. A nod to the days when Anoka firefighters used white horses to pull their steam drawn engines.
ACFD Station No. 1 is located in Anoka’s Public Safety Building at 275 Harrison Street.
ACFD Station No. 2 is located in Champlin’s Public Safety Building at 11955 Champlin Drive.
The Department recruits members throughout the year. If you are interested in serving on the fire department please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by Station No. 1 in Anoka to request an application.
