How The Fire District Was Formed
In August of 2011, the governmental bodies of the City of Miamisburg and Miami Township chose to combine efforts in providing fire and EMS services in order to achieve a cost savings and the elimination of redundant services.
After nearly five and half years of discussion, research and analysis, a steering committee recommendation to both City and Township Officials paved the way for the fire district to be formed under Section 505.371 of the Ohio Revised Code.
A five (5) member Board of Trustees was selected as the governing body for the fire district. The governing body is comprised of one elected official from both the Township and city; one resident from both the township and city and a fifth member chosen by the members of the board.
In June of 2012, the new fire district became operational utilizing members from the two former departments. The fire district operates from five (5) emergency response facilities geographically located to aid in quick response for the needs of the community. Currently, the fire district operates three (3) engine companies, two (2) truck companies and five (5) Advanced Life Support (ALS) EMS units.
Without financial support from the voters, providing these services will become even more challenging as we continue to move forward. We are focused on customer service and meeting the needs of our citizens. Our mission is to protect life, property and serve the citizens of our fire district to the fullest. To the best of our efforts, we will meet our mission.
