The Mission of the Delhi Township Fire Department is to minimize the impact of community emergencies through education, prevention and service.

About the Department

In 1997, the department began providing contractual fire protection to the residents of Alaiedon Township. Delhi Township is also part of a regional mutual aid system to better serve its residents.

With an ISO rating of 4,the DTFD is a combination style department containing 19 full time and 10 part time personnel and 15 members who are paid, on-call. In 2021, the department responded to 3,910 calls, of which approximately 80% were EMS related.

The Delhi Township Fire Department provides Advanced Life Support Ambulance service to the residents around the clock. Additionally, the Department has equipment and trained personnel to provide Fire, EMS, and Rescue and Extrication Services. Delhi Township personnel spend a great deal of time training in an effort to be prepared for any emergency that may arise in our community.

Resident Inquiries

The department welcomes inquiries from residents of Delhi and Alaiedon Township interested in becoming active, paid, on-call members. For information contact our business office at 517-694-3327.

Community Service

The Delhi Township Fire Department takes a great deal of pride in being a member of the Delhi Township community. As a result, the members are active throughout the community. From assisting the Kiwanis Club in their paper drive to serving birthday cake at one of the area senior apartments, it is not unusual to see DTFD employees in the community providing assistance to those Delhi Township residents and groups that request it. 

Participation in school activities is always a part of the regular activity schedule, along with delivering meals to township residents through the Ingham County Meals-on-Wheels Program and assisting the community food bank.
