Fire & Emergency Medical Services
The Washington Township Fire Department is accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International, a distinction earned by meeting or exceeding performance standards in the areas of operations, training, equipment, disaster response planning, human resources, inspections, and public education.
The Department provides fire prevention, suppression, emergency medical services and fire safety/prevention education programs for the residents of Washington Township. The Washington Township service area encompasses 27.5 square miles and includes the City of Dublin and portions of Franklin, Delaware, and Union counties.
In the 2015 National Citizen Survey of Dublin residents, the City of Dublin received a 98% satisfaction rating. Satisfaction with safety services was a major contributor to overall resident satisfaction on this survey. Residents reported high satisfaction with each of the Fire Department’s service categories: 98% for Fire, 93% for Fire Prevention, and 98% for Ambulance/EMS.
The Department’s four stations are strategically located within the Township to facilitate quick response time on emergency calls to any part of the service area. All operate fire trucks, medic units, and have equipment for land and water rescues and one or more pieces of specialized equipment.
