The Homer Township Fire Protection District is unified and focused on accomplishing its’ mission. OUR Mission ~ Protecting the community with dedication and pride, upholding the highest level of care and service, advocating for every citizen in their time of need with professionalism, respect, and honor, and proudly upholding our values and tradition of making house calls since 1958.

To achieve our mission, we will embrace the community. I view our objective two ways. First, to provide the best protection possible to those we have sworn to serve while delivering a service to them that is second to none. Second, to address each situation and citizen as we would want our own families to be assisted.  

When the public needs us, no matter what the problem, regardless of the time of day, they call upon us. Even if it’s out of our area of expertise, it doesn’t matter, because we’ll find the appropriate resources to help. We treat people like family with respect, honor, and professionalism. Our mission is to protect and care for people.

To the residents of our community, I promise an open and accessible Fire District responsive to your concerns. We will work hard to earn your trust and maintain a partnership while treating you with dignity and respect. Public safety is our top priority. We will continue to explore all sources of revenue to ensure we are being fiscally responsible in providing emergency services. I have confidence that together this community and the Fire District will complete our mission.
