About the Department
The Fenton Township Fire Department (FTFD) covers approximately 32
square miles and provides fire, rescue, and emergency medical services
to the residents and visitors of the Township. The FTFD was established
in 1975 as an on-call department. In 1996 the Township hired its first
full time Fire Chief who is also the administrator of the Department.
The FTFD is committed to the education of the children within the Township.
We have a "Safe at Home Program" in the schools to educate
them on fire safety.
Our Department is equipped with automatic external defibrillators (AED's)
for cardiac arrests and we have a thermal imaging camera to detect fires
inside of walls and other areas not seen by the human eye.
As with any successful organization, there needs to be people that
care. We in the FTFD have the most caring and dedicated individuals
in the profession. Without their input and hard work, there would not
be a fire department. We would also like to give credit to all the people
that work behind the scenes to support us on a daily basis - Thank You!
