Fire Department

The Morongo Fire Department responds to calls both on and off of the reservation. They were one of the first departments to respond to the Esperanza fire in the fall of 2006. The Morongo Fire Department includes a staff of 20 firefighters responsible for protecting 110 square miles of the reservation land as well as the residential community, tribal enterprises and the 27-story, 44-acre casino.
