The Elizabeth Township Fire & Emergency Medical Services Department is now an entity of Elizabeth Township. The contract with the City of New Carlisle Fire Division to provide these services expired at midnight on November 6, 2023. The Elizabeth Township Fire Department consists of devoted emergency service providers such as Firefighters, Paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians. All of our providers are cross-trained in fire and EMS operations and are committed to providing the best service possible to the citizens of Elizabeth Township. Each emergency service provider holds the deepest professional commitment toward the goal of the Elizabeth Township Fire Department in serving the community.
With the startup of the Elizabeth Township Fire and EMS department, we welcome our new Chief Adam Marchal. Chief Marchal comes to us with twenty-plus years of fire and EMS service in both career and volunteer departments. He is currently a Battalion Chief with the Butler Township Fire Department. Chief Marchal was chosen from a long list of applicants by a select committee of a township trustee, two local community fire Chiefs, and a retired Chief. With his experience, we have the greatest level of expectations to solidify and grow your township fire department.
The Fire Department exercises fiscal responsibility and is customer-driven through dedication to providing superior service to the citizens of Elizabeth Township while striving for organizational growth. Additionally, all of our emergency service providers display compassion and empathy towards all citizens. Our Fire Department takes great pride in being community-based, the truest sense of “neighbors helping neighbors”.
The Fire Department in Elizabeth Township is staffed with two emergency service providers on a continual basis, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We try to maintain at least one paramedic on duty so advanced life support measures can be implemented quickly which increases the survivability for the most severe medical responses.
On an annual basis, the Elizabeth Township Fire & EMS Department responds to an average of 225 emergency calls. Our average response time is 9 minutes from the time of dispatch to arrival on the scene. Assistance from surrounding Fire Departments is sometimes required because of the complexity, magnitude, or location of the emergency response.
The goal of the Elizabeth Township Fire Department is to provide the best quality fire and emergency services to Elizabeth Township and the surrounding communities that we may be called to through mutual-aid agreements. This is done through dedication, desire to serve, professionalism, and caring compassion for our neighbors.
