Fire/EMS

Most fire units in Erie County are numbered under a cooperative 3-digit system where the 1st digit represents the department, the 2nd digit represents the type of apparatus, and the 3rd digit represents the home station of the unit. Obviously this breaks down when you have more than one kind of apparatus housed at a particular station. But things work out quite well for the most part.

Some of the communities to the extreme east of the county, namely Vermilion (City) FD & Florence Twp FD, seem more aligned with Lorain County for some reason, and do not participate in the Erie County system. Also, not much info is available at this time to determine if Kelleys Island FD & Cedar Point FD work into the Erie County system.

It is possible that Wakeman FD in extreme northeast Huron County may work into the Erie County system, but this has not been confirmed.

The Utilities group (second digit "4") above contains several different kinds of apparatus, some Chief's units ("c"), Rescues ("r"), Grass/Brush rigs ("g"), and other utility vehicles.

North Central EMS stations

  • Station 3 - Milan

  • Station 5 - Berlin Hts

  • 1700 - Ohio Veteran's Home PD
  • 2200 - Erie County SO
  • 2400 - Perkins Township PD

Huron & Sandusky PD's use strange callsign systems based on year-of-hire rather than numbering by department/division. Cedar Point PD uses 3-digit numbers with the first digit based on shift assignment.
