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 levy. Revenue from the public safety levy is split between the Fire Department and law enforcement.
The Fire Department responded to 3004, calls for service in 2022 and with each and every response we strive to fulfill our mission.
Aluminum Can Recycling Project
Our aluminum can recycling bin has been moved to it’s new home on the grounds of the new fire fire station, 11599 Concord Hambden Road.
Thanks to your support, we’ve recycled 2,288 pounds of aluminum to date.
Funds from this project support our fire education programs.
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 near each hydrant as they allow water to flow then close the hydrant. If a hydrant needs repairs, we send a request to the respective water company who complete repairs. Your water may appear slightly discolored as we flush in your neighborhood. Running water cold for several minutes before use should eliminate any discolorations.
