Fire & EMS

This is a volunteer fire and life squad department. The members volunteer a tremendous amount of their time to the Township. We are proud to have these dedicated folks working for us. We all will continue to do our best for our Township residents.

THANK YOU for your continued support!

Mission Statement

The Wayne Township Fire Department & Emergency Medical Services will proudly and continuously protect life, property and the environment from fire, medical emergencies, natural disasters and other emergencies for those who live, work and travel through Wayne Township and the surrounding areas with competent, professional and honest members.


Our goal is to provide professional, prompt and efficient response to fire, medical and other emergencies with trained personnel and state-of-the-art equipment. 

Department Information

The Wayne Township Fire Department and EMS provides fire protection services and EMS services to Wayne Township and participates in mutual aid agreements with other townships and other counties.  We have provided services to Butler County, Preble County and Warren County.  In addition to its fire responsibilities, the department provides rescue and general emergency services.

Our fire department was organized in 1948 as a volunteer fire department.  The term “volunteer” refers to the fact that each member volunteers to come when called.  The fire department is controlled by the Wayne Township Board of Trustees who appoint a Fire Chief to manage both the fire department and emergency medical services.  The Fire Chief is authorized by the Township Trustees to appoint officers to assist in the management of emergency operations and Township owned equipment.  The size of our department is currently set at 26 members.  The individual members are the most important part of the department and without their services we would not have a volunteer department.

Our Volunteer Firefighters & Squad Members

Communities served by volunteer departments depend on them to be their first line of defense for many types of emergencies. These emergencies include fire, emergency medical incidents, terrorist events, natural disasters, hazardous materials incidents, water rescue emergencies and other general public service calls.

Emergencies involve more than fires and vehicle accidents, they include cave-ins, building collapses, motor vehicle accidents, aircraft crashes, tornadoes, hazardous materials incidents, civil disturbances, rescue operations, explosions, water incidents and medical emergencies.  The emergency medical list is unlimited.

Our volunteers invest a large amount of time serving our communities. These time commitments include operational responses, training, fund-raising, maintenance and administrative duties.  Volunteering in the fire and EMS service is one of the most demanding and time-consuming volunteer activities today.

Recruiting New Members:

The Wayne Township Fire Department and EMS is currently seeking new members!  We’re looking for firefighters and EMT’s.  The department provides all of your equipment and training. 

If interested in becoming a member, please contact Doug Hoit or Cindy Phillips at the fire station at 513-424-9710.

Wayne Township Fire Department to Bolster Fire Prevention Efforts with FM Global Grant

The Wayne Township Fire Department has receiveda $1,629 fire prevention grant from FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers.

FM Global representatives presented the award to Chief Doug Hoitat the Wayne Township Fire Station. The award will be used to assist with fire prevention activities in the community to help educate the community and reduce the number of fires.

Because fire continues to be the leading cause of property damage worldwide, during the past 35 years FM Global has contributed millions of dollars in fire prevention grants to fire service organizations around the globe. Locally, the company has awarded grants to a number of Ohio-based organizations.

 “At FM Global, we strongly believe the majority of property damage is preventable, not inevitable,” said Michael Spaziani, manager of the fire prevention grant program. “Far too often, inadequate budgets prevent those organizations working to prevent fire from being as proactive as they would like to be. With additional financial support, grant recipients are actively helping to improve property risk in the communities they serve.”

Through its Fire Prevention Grant Program, FM Global awards grants quarterly to fire departments—as well as national, state, regional, local and community organizations worldwide—that best demonstrate a need for funding, where dollars can have the most demonstrable impact on preventing fire, or mitigating the damage it can quickly cause.
