Clifty Volunteer Fire Company No. 6

(631 W. Clifty Drive – Click to View Map)
Clifty Six Firehouse
Located on Clifty Drive on the hilltop next to the Madison Consolidated High School, the “Sixes” were organized in 1969, nearly 128 years after the Fair Play Fire Company. They are responsible for all vehicle extrication and specialized rescue in the city and area. All of this company’s apparatus was painted in metallic blue and white, but in 2008, the company received the Four’s 1994 Seagrave ladder truck, which provides an aerial ladder to the hilltop (and still remains Kelly green).
