The Mifflin Township Division of Fire provides fire and emergency medical services (EMS) to the city of Gahanna and the unincorporated portion of the township. With state-of-the-art equipment, these highly trained professionals are there to help during some of our resident’s most difficult times, and they serve with care, compassion and professionalism. In short: we treat our residents as we would our own family. 

Responding to approximately 12,000 calls for service each year, the Division of Fire is one of the busiest fire departments in the region, responding to calls in an average of four minutes.

Rapid intervention at the time of a fire or medical emergency requires critical training and reliable state-of-the-art equipment and apparatus. Mifflin Township employs professional fire fighters who are cross trained as paramedics. This is an important asset to the department as it allows for staffing to be adjusted and, more importantly, ensures that when an apparatus is called to the scene of an emergency the same level of care can be provided by all staff members.

The Division of Fire is staffed 24/7 by firefighters and key personnel who work a weekday schedule such as fire prevention and administration. Additionally, the Mifflin Township-Division of Fire is able to deploy bike medic crews during special events in the community.
