Volunteer Firefighters

Some people have expressed an interest in or discussed having volunteer firefighters serving

with the Elizabeth Township Fire and EMS Department. The department will accept people

willing to serve in a volunteer capacity.

To serve as a volunteer with the Elizabeth Township Fire Department you must complete a fire

department application, be a resident of or closely bordering our township, at least eighteen

(18) years of age, be at least a high school graduate, have a valid Ohio driver’s license, show

proof of a recent acceptable physical examination, be willing to submit to a background check,

and undergo an interview with the Fire Chief and Fire Department Administrator.

If you are already trained and registered with the State of Ohio to the volunteer firefighter level

or above, excellent. If not, you would need to complete a volunteer awareness level course that

meets the Ohio Administrative Code requirements for volunteer firefighters.

The Ohio Fire Academy is offering a volunteer firefighter awareness class at the Fire Academy in

Reynoldsburg, OH. This is a two-consecutive weekend class taking place in August. There are no

course fees, and tuition, meals, course materials, and dormitories are provided free of charge.

You would be responsible for your travel costs. Here's more information about the training event.

If you are interested in serving with the Elizabeth Township Fire and EMS Department as a

volunteer firefighter, please contact Chief Adam Marchal at 937-875-2121 or 937-418-6449, or

Fire Department Administrator Art Blackmore at 937-875-2121 or 937-573-8519.
