Fire Extinguishment Division

The Orion Township Fire Department is an all-hazards Fire Department that provides fire protection and Advanced Life Support (ALS) emergency medical services to the residents, businesses, and visitors of both Orion Township and The Village of Lake Orion. The department operates out of four fire stations located throughout the community from which services are provided through a combination of career and paid-on-call firefighters.

Full-time personnel are assigned to one of three battalions that work 24 hours per shift, seven days a week. Each shift is staffed with minimally eight Firefighter/EMTs, some of whom are Paramedics. 

The Fire Department operates under the administrative leadership of the Fire Chief and is supported by an Assistant Chief, Fire Marshal, two Fire Inspectors, an EMS Coordinator and an Office Coordinator.

Fire Extinguishment Division personnel are comprised of: three Captains - Command Officer, three Lieutenants, 12 Firefighter/Paramedics, and 12 Firefighter/EMTs. We also are supported by 6 part-time Firefighters. In addition to emergency response, personnel conduct daily training sessions on the skills, knowledge, and abilities that are expected to be performed as firefighters.

The department shares a strong belief that the best way to fight a fire is to prevent it from ever happening. Through a commitment to excellence and community risk reduction, the Fire Department emphasizes a strong fire prevention program to ensure the safety of the public. We also provide a variety of fire and life safety services including home and business inspections, fire cause and origin investigations, public education and outreach, child safety seat inspections, and community first aid and CPR.

As we continually strive to provide quality customer service and continual improvement, we would like to Thank You, the residents, and elected officials for the continued support of your Fire Department.
