The Homer Township Fire Protection District began operations on August 14, 1958 as a volunteer fire department and has grown through the years to a department staffed with 32 full time firefighter paramedics. The District is overseen by a three (3) member Board of Trustees who hire the Fire Chief to administer and manage the day to day operations. The Board of Trustees also appoint a three (3) member Board of Fire Commissioners whose duty it is to conduct the hiring of new firefighter/paramedics as well as administer the promotional process of the full time firefighter/paramedic staff. Our 2018 staff consisted of 1 Fire Chief, 3 Battalion Chiefs (supervise each shift), 1 Part-Time Administrative Assistant and 1 Division Chief of Fire Prevention.
Our goal is to provide the best fire and rescue services to our residents and visitors while maintaining fiscal responsibility and cost effective solutions.
