Water Storage Facilities for Firefighting

The Springwater Fire Department is looking for locations throughout the Township where water could be extracted in the event of a fire emergency. Any owners of ponds or other water sources are asked to contact the Fire Department to discuss the possibility of using facilities on your property. This cooperation could save a life or reduce property damage. For more information, contact the Fire Department.

Fire Safety Training

Springwater Fire Department provides fire safety training to hundreds of people each year, including the "Learn not to burn" program at area schools. If you or your group is interested in Fire Safety training please contact the Fire Department.

Alarmed for Life

Alarmed for Life is a program which is currently being implemented by Springwater Fire and Emergency Services.  Firefighters will be visiting homes and conducting smoke detector tests with local homeowners.  These visits will focus on ensuring that a home has an adequate number of detectors, the detectors are properly placed, and a test will also be performed to ensure that the detectors are working properly.  The firefighters will also be available to answer any questions that the homeowner may have regarding maintenance of detectors or other related fire safety questions.
