Fire Dept. Facility Project
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.
If you’ve never visited the current fire stations, we invite you to take these virtual tours and learn more about how the Concord Fire Department serves our community.

Limited Home Rule
What is Limited Home Rule (LHR)?
House Bill 77, signed by then Governor George Voinovich on June 18, 1991, allowed Townships in the State of Ohio to adopt Limited Home Rule (LHR), following prescribed procedures, outlined in Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 504.01. LHR form of government gives broader powers to townships that enact it, and it allows a township and its citizens to be more proactive in creating legislation of benefit to those within the community. Limited home rule allows townships to enact resolutions to improve the health, safety and welfare of its citizens. The township may not exercise any power that conflicts with the general laws of the State.
For more information on some of the benefits of Limited Home Rule, type of legislation permissible under Limited Home Rule and non-permitted legislation under Limited Home Rule, please refer to Limited Home Rule Information.
