Provide for the protection and preservation of life and property, mindful of acceptable levels of risk, by maintaining the highest standards of emergency medical services, fire suppression, fire prevention, education, and safety programs.
A message from Fire Chief Randy Little
In 1946, the Jackson Township Fire Department was formed with the mission of delivering the highest quality service possible to the citizens of our community. At that time, the department was staffed by volunteers. The level of commitment needed to fulfill this mission was high, and volunteer firefighters were up to the task.
Today much has changed. We now operate four full-time fire stations, but the level of commitment and dedication to delivering that same high quality of service by our firefighters and paramedics remains the same as it was more than 70 years ago.
Whether it is fire, medical, rescue, public education or fire prevention, our staff is dedicated to serving you with professionalism and excellence. Our highly trained professionals are always looking for ways to increase our value and service to the members of our community utilizing the most cost-effective means possible.
Please let us know how we can better serve you and your family. You can reach me at (614) 945-5049.
