In April, 2002 Station 3 finished a complete renovation. (It was built in the 1940's as a North Hills School.) which included the addition of both a full-height apparatus bay and new classrooms for training.

This station houses the administrative offices, training facility and has sleeping quarters.

In 2002 the Menomonee Falls Fire Department is a combination department, consisting of 9 fulltime, 80 paid-on-call, 30 standby, three reserve members and an Administrative Assistant.  To maintain adequate staffing, some of the paid-on-call members also work a 10-12 hour day shift or a 12-hour night shift.  Standby members do not live in the village, so they give back to the Department by staying overnight at Station 3 every 13 days.  The Department's two photographers are volunteers.  

The makeup of the Menomonee Falls Fire Department consists of Robert Coon as Chief and 28 years on the Department, 1 1/2 years paid-on-call and 26 1/2 years fulltime, with the last three as Chief.  Assistant Chief Richard Burgess as a paid-on-call member of 21 years, Deputy Chief Don Umhoefer as a paid-on-call member for 20 years, and Division Chief Richard Kropp as a paid-on-call member of 25 years.  There are four station captains, either paid-on-call or standby, 10 lieutenants, four of which are fulltime, one as our training officer, one in the Fire Prevention Bureau and two fulltime shift lieutenants.  

Almost half the members have been on the Department for two years or less, with the rest varying up to 29 years.  There are 13 females on the Department.  There is no longer a women's auxiliary.  There are many opportunities for members to attend classes, seminars and conventions.  Many of the members join the Department to acquire training and experience, which allows them to apply for fulltime positions.  

Paid-on-call members are paid, on average, $10.00 per hour for calls, $5.15 for meetings, drills and parades.  Standby members receive a minimal amount for expenses.  Members no longer are fined for missing meetings or calls, but anyone having over four unexcused absences will work 5 hours of extra duty.

At this time, our apparatus consists of five engines, two aerial ladders, four ambulances, one heavy rescue vehicle, one mini pumper and two special services units.
