About Ohio Township Fire Department

Ohio Township Fire Department is a 100% volunteer department, 100% of the time comprised of your neighbors and friends. They’re people just like you – with families, jobs and active lifestyles who still find time to give back to their community.

The department was originally founded as Paradise Fire Department in 1981. Located in Warrick County, Indiana, Ohio Township Fire Department is located immediately East of Evansville, Indiana. We provide firefighting, extrication, specialized rescue, and EMS out of two stations.
