About Vernon Fire

Welcome to the Vernon Township Fire and EMS Website

It is my privilege to represent the members of the Vernon Township Fire & EMS as fire chief. I am proud of the dedication that is demonstrated by our membership that serves you through our core values of Integrity, Accountability, Service and Community.  

Our diverse and robust membership is committed to working together with the community to provide a safe and enjoyable place for those that live, work, or visit Vernon Township

Vernon Township Fire & EMS is a full-service department that responds from two stations to emergency medical incidents, automobile crashes, structure fires, hazardous materials releases, technical rescue incidents and public assistance calls. The services we provide extend beyond emergency response and include public education and fire/injury prevention via community events, building inspections, plan review, media campaigns, and business/school visits.

As you learn more about our department, we welcome your comments to help us serve you better. Serving is the reason for our existence.

I am honored to serve as your fire chief and thank you for becoming more familiar with your fire department.
