History of Champion Fire Department

 In September of 1928 a hand full of residents and business owners saw the need for fire protection. The Champion Heights Fire Department INC. was established as a subscription private company. In 1933 the department was turned over to the Champion Township Trustees due to mounting cost and the Champion Township Fire Department was born. In 1955 a full time Fire Chief was hired and by 1965 the department had manning 24 hours a day. EMS service was added in the mid 1970, with paramedic service being added in 1982. Today due to the rise in our call volume we are staffed 24/7 with four personnel who man eight apparatus. The call volume in 1929 was 15, and in 2017 we responded to 2,322 alarms. Champion Township Fire Department is an I.S.O. Class 4/4y
