Serving Our Community
The Perry Township Fire Department is currently a combination department of full-time, part-time and paid per call staff. Our station is manned 24/7 with one full-time Firefighter/Paramedic, whom is partnered with one EMT. A second Firefighter Paramedic is on staff from 8 am to 4 pm Monday thru Friday to assist the Fire Chief with office work and be a second responder when necessary. Our paid per call staff is called upon to cover any motor vehicle accidents or fire calls. They also are called upon if we should receive a second EMS call while the manned ambulance is on another assignment. We have a total roster of about 50 members with different training levels, both Fire and EMS.
The Perry Township Fire Department participates and hosts many trainings to further and refresh the training levels of our members. We participate in annual Hazmat Technician, CPR, and Emergency Vehicle Operations courses. All our Paramedics are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Life Support. We participate in continuing education for firefighting, EMS, Fire Investigation, Fire Inspection, Confine Space Training and Grain Bin Rescue. We also monitor the physical capabilities of our members to do standard firefighting tasks through our annual fire agility test. We strive to keep our skills at the highest to serve our Township Residents.
Our department has come a long way since it was started in 1953 as the Perry Township Fire Association with one engine only providing fire protection services to the Township. In 1998, the Fire Association was dissolved and the Perry Township Fire Department was created being managed by the Perry Township Board of Trustees. We currently have 2 Ambulances, 2 Engines, 1 Tanker, a ladder truck, a Grass truck and 1 Command Vehicle.
I am dedicated to providing the best service to the residents of Perry Township and all visitors who pass through. It is my goal to continue the growth and success of the department that my predecessors have set in the previous years. Thank you for your continued support and GO Commodores!
