Professionally Providing Our Community with Quality Service
The Concord Township Fire Department has evolved since its humble beginnings in 1948 into a modern, progressive organization. A cost-effective combination of full and part time firefighters provide fire suppression and emergency medical services from 2 fully operational fire stations. Department staffing also includes 1 full time and 1 part time civilian fire inspectors who provide fire safety education programs, fire inspections, and ensure new construction in Concord Township is built utilizing the most up to date safety codes.
The Fire Department works diligently to maintain fiscal responsibility. The department is funded primarily by 2 tax levies, a 2.7 mill fire operating levy and a 4.0 mill public safety level. Revenue from the public safety levy is split between the Fire Department and law enforcement.
The Fire Department responded to 2,829 calls for service in 2021 and with each and every response we strive to fulfill our mission.
