Welcome From the Chief

Morgan Hill Fire Chief Jake Hess


The Morgan Hill Fire Department (MHFD) takes great pride in providing Protection of Life, Property, and the Environment through our core values of Customer Service, Performance, and Professionalism. Our City Council supports our mission with its commitment to public safety as a top priority. We are fortunate to have employee diversity from all over California serving in the MHFD! Each member of our Department has chosen public service as his or her profession, and has chosen to work in Morgan Hill. We will continue our efforts to make Morgan Hill safe for our residents, businesses, and guests by providing and enhancing services to meet future needs. The MHFD provides the Morgan Hill community with high quality Fire, EMS, and Fire Marshaling services. Just like many cities in California, we will face challenges in meeting increased service demand. We encourage our customers and community to join in on the communication regarding the expectations of your fire department. We encourage your continued support and engagement to build partnerships with our Fire Team to enhance the quality of life in Morgan Hill.
