The Marion Twp Rural Fire Department is located on Hwy 37 on the north edge of the City of Mitchell.  We are contracted by the Marion and Bono Township Trustees to provide fire protection to the 100+ square miles of mostly rural area.  The Department currently has a roster of 34 fire firefighters responding to a average of 465 calls per year. In 2004 we responded to 253 emergency calls. In 2016 we responded to 575 emergency calls. A 178% increase in call volume in the last 12 years. All members are volunteer and are required to attend a percentage of work and training sessions, alarms, and public relations events to remain in good standing with the Department.  All members are required to obtain FFI and FFII certifications within the first year as a department member, and Driver/Operator certification prior to driving any Department vehicle.  Although EMS certification is not required at this time, we currently have 11 EMT, 6 EMR, and 1 EMT-Paramedic certified personnel that respond with the local ambulance services to medical emergencies in Marion and Bono Townships to provide Basic Emergency Medical Care as well as Extrication for car accidents South of White River.

If you are interested in learning more about the Department and wish to join, please see the "Files" tab to the left to start the application process. When completed please email your application to 501@mariontwpfire.com
