Fire Department Information

Portable Unit Numbers: For all individual Personal Numbers are based on station numbering starting with 01 being the chief. Example: Haring Township Fire Department (Station 600) would have the chief portable number as 601. Asst. Chief would be 602 and would continue based on seniority/rank.

Truck Numbering System: Truck numbering is based on station number. The first digits (or 2) in the station’s ID number are used to identify units. Examples: Selma Township Fire Department (Station 900) Unit Callsigns

  • Engine 9
  • Rescue 9
  • Tanker 9
  • Etc.

South Branch Township (Station 1100)

  • Engine 11
