Anamosa Fire Department Mission Statement:
The residents of Anamosa trust us to protect their lives, property and future. That trust is earned through dedication, commitment and training. Working together, as a team, we will have the courage, strength and knowledge to carry out this challenge.
The Anamosa Fire Department was established in 1857 and is the oldest organization in Jones County. The Anamosa Fire Department protects the nearly 6,000 residents of Anamosa, two unincorporated communities of Stone City and Amber, over one hundred square miles of rural farms and residential acreages as well as two large parks, The Wapsipinicon State Park and the Linn County Matsel Park. The volunteer Fire Department serves under two government entities, the City of Anamosa and the Rural Fire board.
