The Mission of the Oakland Township Fire Department is to safely respond to fire and medical emergencies within the community, to help its citizens deal with those emergencies, and, with regard to the safety of its members, do all it can to limit loss of life, property, and the environment.
The Oakland Township Fire Department offers free Friends and Family CPR classes to all residents. Classes are held on an as needed basis. Please contact Paul Elder at 586-752-5013 or e-mail him at email@example.com for starting times and more information.
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.
