Fire Prevention & Safety

The fire prevention division is under the supervision of Fire Fighter Andrew Linn, who has been serving as the Fire Prevention Coordinator since 2015. Their function is to provide fire safety programs to children in the local schools, Scout Troops, church groups, homeowner’s associations, and other organizations in Oakland Township. On average more than 1000 students receive instruction on an annual basis.

The 1st Saturday of each October, the Oakland Township Fire Department kicks off National Fire Prevention Month by hosting an Open House at Station 2 – 1888 Rochester Road (Stoney Creek and Rochester Roads) from Noon-4pm. The open house allows residents to meet their local firefighters, observe Jaws of Life demonstrations, and take part in several different activities.

If you have any questions or are interested in hosting a fire prevention program, please contact Andrew Linn at (586) 752-5013 or alinn@oaklandtownship.org.
