It is with great pride that I welcome you to the Harrison Township Fire Department website. Officially established in 1945 the Harrison Township Fire Department has a storied history as a leader in the fire service. In 1972 The Harrison Township Fire Department became the first transporting paramedic agency licensed by the State of Michigan. Our department also established the first dive rescue team in Macomb County.

Today the tradition lives on. In addition to fighting fires Harrison Township Fire Department paramedics respond to over 1,500 EMS calls for help annually, and our dive rescue team serves the thousands of residents and visitors who enjoy Lake St. Clair each year.

As Fire Chief it is a privilege to work with the dedicated professionals that comprise the Harrison Township Fire Department. Together we are committed and honored to serve: Our family protecting yours.
