Letter from the Chief

Dear Citizens of the Community of Fairmount Township,

On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Fairmount Township Fire Department, I would like to extend a sincere thank you for your support of our department over the years.

As our community continues to grow, our mission is evolving to continually improve and develop the department, so the citizens we serve are consistently receiving the highest level of emergency services available. We have a very dedicated membership that spends a tremendous amount of time training and developing their skills to efficiently and effectively mitigate the emergency situations we respond to. Taking great pride in being able to offer this service to our community, I pledge to continue to train and develop our members so that we can continue to serve in a prompt, safe, and professional manner.

Our community has an ISO (Insurance Service Office) rating of a 4 with 99.9% of Fairmount Township citizen’s property. We serve over 40 miles of territory in Fairmount Township and mutual aid to our partners when needed. We are committed to services providing fire suppression, hazardous material mitigation, heavy rescue, public education and emergency medical services to name a few. Our dedicated volunteers respond to an average of over 700 alarms annually and growing every year.

We are here for you, and I feel very strongly about being involved, as much as possible in our community. You will see our apparatus and members at various public events throughout the year from festivals, church parties, and even youth sporting events. Our doors are always open to the public, and we welcome and encourage visitors anytime. Please feel free to stop by and get to know the fellow citizens of your communities that have pledged their specialized knowledge, skills, and time in serving you. Volunteers are always welcome and at any skill level. We will get you trained to serve your community.

As your fire Chief of the Fairmount Township Fire Department, it is a pleasure to work with such dedicated personnel who continually strive to improve their skills and service to the community. I am proud to have the opportunity to lead this organization into the future for you, the citizens of Fairmount Township. If there is ever anyway that I can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Chief Chuck Magaha
