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 2,543 calls for service in 2020 and with each and every response we strive to fulfill our mission.
Hydrant Maintenance Program Begins April 15
The Concord Township Fire Department has begun its annual hydrant maintenance program. Concord’s firefighters will flush and test individual hydrants between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. This program will be ongoing into the summer months. Firefighters remain in the vicinity of each hydrant as they allow water to flow, perform necessary testing, then close up the hydrant. If a hydrant needs repairs, we send a request to the respective water company, who are the owners of the hydrants. Residents may notice a slight discoloration of their water when flushing is being completed in their neighborhoods. Running water cold for a few minutes before use should eliminate any discoloration.
