The Fire Department is staffed 100% by volunteers.  Our volunteers provide coverage to Washington Township 24 hours a day.  The fire department is always looking for new members to continue providing this coverage.  Training and equipment are provided.  If you are looking for a challenging, productive and rewarding way to help people, please give serious thought to becoming a volunteer fire fighter.

The Washington Emergency Squad provides emergency medical services to Washington Township.  For information regarding the squad, please visit their website at www.83rescue.org.

The Fire Department, Emergency Squad and Police ask that you have clearly visible house numbers on your mailbox and house so that addresses may be located more easily in case of emergency.  Local ordinance 52-7 states that house numbers shall be a minimum of three inches in height, clearly visible from the street and located below the outside light or more prominent place, if any.  House numbers shall be procured and affixed at the homeowners expense.
