Currently the Hamel Fire Department operates under contract with the City of Medina. It provides coverage for about 75% of the residents and property in the city, protecting more than 5,000 residents and $1,200,000,000 worth of property. As Medina grows, so does the responsibility of the Department. Geographically the Department generally covers the area of Medina from County Road 101 in the east, to Willow Drive in the west, County Road 47 to the north and County Road 24 to the south. The coverage for the remaining 25% of Medina is split between Long Lake FIre, Maple Plain Fire and Loretto Fire.

The Department responds to between 180 and 200 calls annually. These include fires, hazardous material incidents, emergency medical, rescue, good service and server weather incidents.
