  Welcome Middletown Fire Police
The Middletown Fire Police was organized in 1896 for the purpose of maintaining fire lines and keeping order at fire scenes.

Early titles included Private and Roundsman. Fire Police were not to let anyone through the fire lines unless he could produce a fireman's badge.

They also controlled entrance to a building on fire as well as guarding the premises after the fire was out. They were also designated as Special Police.

Today the Fire Police primarily control traffic at the scene of a fire or emergency to help keep our firefighters safe and concentrating on the task at hand.
