|WELCOME TO THE WREN VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT
The Wren Volunteer Fire Dept Inc. was chartered by the Monroe County Board of Supervisors in July 1978 at the request, by petition, of community leaders.
Today, the Wren Fire Department is one of the best-equipped, well-organized, all-volunteer fire departments in the state. It continues to grow and strives to provide the best emergency services possible for the community. Wren Fire Department was the first rural fire department in Monroe County to receive a Class 9 protection rating and currently is the only rural department in the county that holds a Class 8 rating, which lowers homeowner’s insurance substantially for residents of the community.
The department currently operates 3 stations. The main station is located on Highway 45 at the Old Wren Road intersection, with a satellite station on Union Grove road, and one on McAlister Road. The department operates 10 emergency vehicles, which include 3 pumpers, 3 tankers, a heavy wildfire vehicle/tanker, 2 light wildfire vehicles, and a Rescue truck. The department is capable of placing over 10,000 gallons of water at a fire scene on the first cycle of tankers and pumper delivery.
The Wren VFD is located approximately 23 miles south of Tupelo, MS on Highway 45. It is situated approximately half way between Amory on the east, Okolona on the West, Aberdeen on the South and Nettleton on the north and serves approximately 3000 residents.
The department provides fire protection, rescue, basic emergency medical services, and community safety education to an approximately 85 square mile area that is considered Wren. There are approximately 1500 homes, 12 churches, and 15 businesses made up of heavy equipment sales/service, body shops, restaurants, furniture manufacturing and distribution facilities, an asphalt plant, grocery/quick-stops, auto/truck repair shops, childcare centers, and other private businesses. There are approximately 45 miles of county, state and federal roads running through the district including about 15 miles of heavily traveled 4-lane. The department is bordered on its east side by Corp of Engineers wet lands and the Tombigbee River which provides hunting and fishing recreation for residents of north MS and is home to Lake Monroe State Park and recreation area.
