Welcome to the Mt. Morris Fire Protection District website.  The Mt. Morris Fire Protection District was formed in 1953 after the need arose for fire protection in the rural countryside surrounding the quaint Village of Mt. Morris.  The District protects the Village of 3,100 residents as well as the 1,900 that reside in the 45 surrounding square miles of farms and fields.  The District is staffed by a career Fire Chief, Ambulance Crew and 30 Paid per Call Personnel.  The District responds to approximately 180 fire alarms as well as 850 Ambulance calls.  Mt. Morris Fire Operates two ALS Ambulances, three Engines, an ALS Heavy Rescue, a Tower Ladder, a Brush Truck, two Tenders and a Chief's Vehicle.  Mt. Morris is also home to the Illinois State Freedom Bell.  Every Fourth of July weekend the Village celebrates our "Let Freedom Ring" Festival.  This is why we proudly display the Freedom Bell on our patch and words "Let Freedom Ring."  Come join us every July in celebrating the Freedom that we have been given.  ​Let Freedom Ring!
