About the Washington Township Fire & Rescue Department

Our Members:

WTFD is a combination paid-per-call / paid-on-shift department with part-time personnel. A 2 person crew staffs the station from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday-Friday (excluding holidays). Members respond from home to assist the shift personnel and for all incidents that occur outside those hours. All Firefighters are trained to Ohio Firefighter and EMT certifications. Many members have extensive additional training and certifications in firefighting, hazardous materials, rescue operations and EMS, including several Paramedics. Members are required to attend weekly training sessions to keep skills and information up to date with the latest advances in fire fighting tactics and EMS protocols. The WTFD prides itself on being a progressive department that also holds true to the greatest traditions of the fire service.
