The Medford Fire Department has provided fire protection to Medford Rural Fire Protection District 2 (MRFPD2) under contractual agreement since 1952. The current ten-year agreement for $1.5 million per year is renewable in 2027. This is a mutually beneficial relationship for both parties. The Medford Fire Department provides administrative services, emergency dispatch, firefighting personnel, paramedic emergency medical response, a regional hazardous materials team, heavy rescue and life safety services.

Additionally, Medford Fire Department's Fire & Life Safety Division provides public education, building safety inspections, new construction plans review, and fire investigations. These services are enhanced by mutual aid agreements with neighboring fire authorities.

MRFPD2 owns approximately 50% of Medford Fire Department's fire apparatus. The district also funds a portion of firefighting equipment, firefighter training, and medical equipment including lifesaving defibrillator/monitors. The Medford Fire Department responds to approximately 800 fire and medical emergency calls per year to the district’s 11,326 residents in an area covering over 30 square miles.
