The Morningside Volunteer Fire Department will accomplish its vision by ensuring all members are competent and capable in needed areas of training, being regularly engaged with local community groups, and strive to reflect the local community, be professional, and provide equity to all.
The Morningside Volunteer Fire department (MVFD) has proudly served the Town of Morningside and the citizens of Prince George’s County since 1944. Our diverse department consists of working professionals and tradesman, individuals who have retired from their careers, college students, and young adults, who proudly volunteer their time to provide 24/7 fire protection and emergency medical services. We house live-in members who serve as Firefighters and EMS. In addition, we have an administrative staff that supports the department’s mission and operations team. The town makes up .56 square miles of the Department’s primary response area. The total response area includes many portions of Prince George’s County such as Camp Springs, Suitland, Temple Hills, Fairmont Heights, District Heights, Capital Heights, Oxon Hill, Forestville, Clinton, Upper Marlboro, Fort Washington, and Seat Pleasant. Throughout any given year, our members can also respond to the Nation’s Capitol, Washington, DC, and points as far away as Alexandria, VA. MVFD is 100% volunteer and one of the busiest fire departments in the county. The population density can fluctuate to 90,000 people throughout the peak travel periods and during special events. Notably, the MVFD is a primary responder to Joint Base Andrews, a 17+ mile portion of the Interstate 95/495 "the beltway", 4 METRO stations, and several other critical infrastructure assets and federal government sites.
