The Fire Department personnel consists of 18 full-time dedicated Firefighters, the Fire Chief, and one part-time Secretary. All Firefighters, Sergeants, Lieutenants and Captains are state-licensed, fully qualified, paramedics, with a high degree of 85-year time-honored Esprit de corps work ethic, who are capable of handling local emergencies. They are also trained to operate the City’s emergency rescue ambulance, back-up rescue/rehab vehicle, two engine pumpers and the 75’ aerial ladder truck. Through efficient time-tested operational fire ground and ALS procedures, they have become one of the most successful departments in the Downriver area.

This includes the Decontamination Room for sanitization of equipment and personnel, the Apparatus Floor for fire engine placement and small mechanical repair, medical equipment/supply area, Watch Room and Officers Room, where citizen questions and other needs are addressed. The upstairs, furthermore, has the Department’s administration offices, kitchen, dining room, locker room, bathroom, dorm, living and fitness areas for firefighters. While the basement provides an additional storeroom space for surplus, records, equipment and supplies, in addition to the Fire Inspector’s evidence containers.
