Since the dissolution of the Magee Fire Department the town of Tyre has contracted with the Galen-Clyde Fire Department to provide fire service.

There were a total of four options put before a sub-committee tasked with making the final decision on the future of fire service in Tyre. Those including continuing to contract with the Galen-Clyde Fire District and extending that district to include the town of Tyre.

The proposed Tyre Fire Company would give the town the best of both worlds: Continued support from the Galen-Clyde Fire District, and its own company that could be manned by local volunteers.
