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 3-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 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 2,624 calls for service in 2018 and with each and every response we strive to fulfill our mission.
Fire Station Projects
In 1966, Concord Township’s Fire Station #1 and Station #2 were dedicated. Each fire station has undergone multiple renovations and additions since that time. Staffing levels and equipment requirements have expanded to meet the increased demand for service. The department’s scope of service has expanded to include 24 hour staffing, emergency medical response and fire prevention. The department continuously evaluates and plans for its future needs and works diligently to maintain fiscal responsibility. In 2017 Concord Township contracted with the Ohio Fire Chiefs’ Association to perform a facility analysis and fire station location analysis to help us plan for the future. Currently Concord Township is working with Lemay, Erickson, Willcox architects for the planning, design and construction documentation for the future replacement of Concord Township’s fire stations.
We recently received an updated preliminary rendering of Fire Station #1. The cost estimation for Station #1 was received on August 1, 2019. We encourage residents to know the facts regarding the proposed stations. Below are the plans, cost estimates, a detailed fact sheet and a Q&A sheet. We hope you will review them. Please contact our Fire Chief or Administrator if you have any questions. Thank you.
