Welcome to Marion Township Fire Department Inc.
Well 2020 is gone and we begin 2021, and hopefully the things we all went through in 2020 is going to be behind us soon and we can get back to normal. Remember to stay vigilant, as it is going to take awhile and everybody being cautious. Marion EMS personnel will continue with wearing PPE when the enter your home regardless of why you called us. Remember this is not just for our protection, it is also for yours. With Covid 19 some are having the virus and not showing any symptoms. We continue to take these precautions to protect you from us just as much as we are protecting ourselves so we can continue to respond to calls.
