Fire Prevention

Each year the Monroe Township Fire Department conducts on-site fire prevention and safety exercises at our area elementary schools. We provide students the opportunity to see the inside of a Medic transport vehicle, examine a firefighting truck and its associated equipment, and give students the opportunity to see a fire fighter in full protective gear including their SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus). Students are lead through a stop-drop-and-roll exercises and taught the importance of staying low when exiting a house that has smoke. This fire prevention educational exercise has historically always been a big hit with the Johnstown Elementary students and faculty.

Fire Prevention Mission
To protect the lives and property of our citizens, visitors, and firefighters through effective code enforcement by reviewing land development and building plans; inspecting buildings, tenant processes, and fire and life safety protection systems; and evaluating public/private water systems for effective fire protection.

Currently, under the leadership of Chief Dudley Wright, the full-time staff and other personnel who are all certified State of Ohio Fire Safety Inspectors, are responsible for meeting three primary objectives:

  • Inspect occupancies according to state and local codes
