Mifflin Township Division of Fire - Overview
The Mifflin Township Division of Fire provides fire and emergency medical services to the City of Gahanna and the unincorporated areas of Mifflin Township. Responding to over 8,000 calls for assistance per year with a response time of less than four minutes, the Division of Fire is one of the busiest fire departments in Franklin County.
Rapid emergency crisis intervention at the time of a fire or medical emergency depends on the training of the personnel and reliable state-of-the-art equipment and apparatus. Mifflin Township employs professional fire fighters who are cross-trained as paramedics. This is an important asset to the department as it allows for staffing to be adjusted and more importantly ensures that when a Mifflin Township Division of Fire emergency apparatus is called to the scene of an emergency, the same level of care can be given by all staff members.
The Division of Fire is staffed 24/7 by firefighters who work a shift lasting 24 hours with 48 hours off before they return to duty. The Division of Fire also utilizes key personnel who work a 40 hour schedule for positions such as fire prevention and administration.
The Department has 18 vehicles specifically suited and equipped to provide emergency health care and fire protection. Visit the firehouse section of our web site to learn more about what each apparatus is used for and how it is staffed.
