To provide service, either proactive or emergency, necessary to protect and enhance the quality of life for residents of and visitors to Frenchtown Charter Township.
The Frenchtown Fire Department is a combination department made up of full-time and paid-on-call firemen. The Department Chief, Mark Nicholai; Fire Inspector Joshua Maddox, and Secretary Angie Ashcraft staff the headquarters at Station 1. Station 1 has the Department Captain, and Station 2 has a Department Lieutenant per shift on duty. Both Headquarters and Station 2 have at least two full-time men on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, including the Officer on duty.
The Department has four fire stations located in Frenchtown Township. Most of the Department firefighters have become Emergency Medical Technicians, Specialists, and Paramedics. We have 17 full-time firefighters and 13 paid on-call firefighters. (Paid on-call firefighters must live in the township and respond from their homes.) To be a POC they must live within the Township boundaries and apply at Station 1 or at the township hall. They must then pass all testing requirements, then are sent to school to take Firefighter I and II course before they can run calls. They must be an EMT before running rescue calls.
