Running out of this station are one engine, a 2007 Pierce 1250-g.p.m. pumper, a 2015 Wheeled Coach ambulance, a 1998 E-One 95 foot aerial platform and a 14 foot Haz-Mat trailer.

In August 2002, voters in the City of Madison Heights passed the Fire Station Bond Proposal. This bond proposal provided $5.926 million to construct a new, state-of-the-art headquarters fire station and training tower at the corner of Brush and Irving. This headquarters fire station contains a five-bay apparatus garage, a 1,200 square foot training room that can double as a public meeting room, and separate locker and shower facilities for male and female employees.
The training tower provides the Fire Department with many new training opportunities including a live burn room. The Fire Department moved into their new headquarters in June of 2004.
Station #2 is located at 26339 John R and houses one engine, a 2004 1250-gpm Pierce pumper, a 2011 Horton medium-duty ambulance, and a 2001 24' Special Response Trailer.
