Use Your Experience To Serve Your Community
Ohio Township Fire Department is contracted with the Ohio Township Trustee to provide fire, rescue and EMS service to the Township and surrounding community. As the township grows, and our professional volunteer firefighters dedicate more time to specialized training and responding to emergencies, we realized that we needed the support of local business professionals to help run our nonprofit corporation more effectively.
We are currently looking for local business professionals, accounting personnel and people with legal and corporate experience to help with the Administrative Division. The administrative division handles the business side of the fire department and is led by a board of directions, including a president, a vice-president, a secretary and a treasurer.
The Board of Directors main duties is to keep the Operations Division funded and equipped, as the Operations Division sees fit, to best serve the residents and visitors of Ohio Township

- Contract negotiations to provide fire, rescue and EMS services
- Liaison between the Operations Division and the township government
- Ensuring compliance with the 501(c)(3) nonprofit status
- Conducting monthly shareholder meetings

The elections for the Board of Directors will be in November 2016. In order to get your name on the ballot, you will need to have an interview with the Nomination Committee. After passing your interview, your name will be added to the ballot under the position that you are interested in holding.
