The fire department operates a fire training center located at 550 Quarry Road.  The center was completed in 2000.  It consists of a four story training tower, a burn building, drafting pit, and various fire related training props.  The Monroe Fire Department shares this facility through an interlocal agreement with Union County.  This allows all county fire departments to share the use of the facility.  Training drills are conducted throughout the year both day and night.

In 2013 a natural gas training prop center was completed.
