We are a combination type Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) department that includes twenty-one career staff and 80 part-time and volunteer staff. We have three fire stations with a total of 22 pieces of equipment.
As our name indicates, our department was consolidated from two departments in 1990, one being the City of New Haven with two fire stations, and the other being Adams Township also with two fire stations. Two stations were closed and one central station was built. This consolidation allowed us the opportunity to improve our services to the community. In 2003 with the support of the local community and the City we took a huge step in service and became and Advanced Life Support (ALS) Paramedic Service.
