On November 1, 2013 if you are served by the Cambridge Fire Department, your homeowners insurance could be going down. We were recently re-tested by ISO and made some significant improvements in our classification for fire suppression services. We encourage you to call your agent and check since approximately 80% of all insurance companies use the ISO rating schedule to evaluate the readiness of the fire service.

Currently, if you reside within 1,000 feet of a City of Cambridge municipal hydrant we are rated at 6. On November 1st this will drop to a 4! This equals money savings to you the homeowner. Also for our rural residents, if you are within 5 miles of Cambridge Fire State #1 located at 300 3rd Avenue NE, Cambridge you are rated a 9. As of November 1st that will drop to a 7! We work extremely hard at providing you with the very best fire service we can. If you have further questions, please contact Chief Okerlund at 763-286-8633.


The Cambridge Fire Department is a 30 member paid, on-call department.  Current fire fighting apparatus includes three pumpers, one ladder truck, two tankers, three grass rigs, and a chief's car.  The Fire Department responds when dispatched by 911.

Contact us with any questions or concerns or to set up a tour, or a visit to talk about fire safety.
