The Litchfield Fire & Rescue team is staffed by fire chief Jason Davis and 20 highly dedicated volunteers. They train weekly, maintain the equipment and vehicles regularly, attend seminars, conferences and workshops and are on call 24/7 for Litchfield Township residents and other local fire departments.
Q: Most importantly, if there is an emergency, how do I contact you?
A: In case of an emergency, dial 9-1-1. The dispatchers will notify the correct emergency responders to help mitigate the issue.
For non-emergencies, call us at 330.725.0911 and leave a message, and we will return your call as soon as possible.
Q: So what does a volunteer fire & rescue department do?
A: Our team is on call 24/7 to be there for you. We respond to all emergency calls in our township and neighboring communities that we have mutual aid agreements with.
Also, we have drill every Thursday evening, 7-9 pm:
- First Thursday, Fire Training
- Second Thursday, Work Night (building and truck check and maintenance)
- Third Thursday, EMS Training
- Fourth Thursday, Association Meeting
Q: Any fundraisers or upcoming events?

Q: How do I learn more about becoming a volunteer firefighter for Litchfield Fire & Rescue?
A: Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can stop up on any Thursday evening between 7-9 pm. Otherwise, call us at 330.725.0911, leave a message, and someone will call you back. You need no previous experience; we will provide you with all the training you’ll need. Requirements are a high school diploma, drivers’ license, and passing a background check and basic physical. We’d love for you to join our team!
Q: What can you tell me about the hydrants in Litchfield Township?
A: Litchfield has less than 10% pressurized hydrants. If there is a fire, this means we have to either haul water with tankers or use a static water source such as dry hydrants or ponds for the other 90% of the township.
Q: What is the ISO/PPC rating I keep hearing about?
A: Our fire department is audited every five years by the Insurance Service Office to determine our ISO/PPC (Public Protection Classification) rating. We were audited in 2016 and went from a 7/9 split classification to a 5, which in return should lower our taxpayers’ insurance rates . . . good news for all of us!
