The Northville City Fire Department provides fire suppression, basic
life support (BLS) EMS, Fire Prevention and Inspection Services and
Public Education for the Cities of Northville and Plymouth, Michigan,
operating out of three stations. The Department is staffed by a full
time Chief and 55 part-time and paid on call Firefighters and EMS
responders. The Northville Plymouth Fire Advisory Board, consisting of
elected and appointed officials from each City, provides input into the
operation of the Department.
Between the two Cities, the Department serves an area of 4.5 square
miles and a residential population of 15,000. The Department responds to
approximately 1600 calls for service each year.
The Fire Department is an active participant in the Western Wayne Fire
Department Mutual Aid Association, whose members include over 20
municipalities in Western Wayne and Southwestern Oakland Counties. The
Association supports a Special Operations Group consisting of a
Hazardous Materials Response Team and a Technical Rescue (USAR) team,
and the Department contributes members to both teams. Automatic Mutual
Aid Agreements with the City of Novi and Plymouth Township allows us to
share resources with neighboring communities on a pre-arranged basis in
response to structure fires. The Department also participates in HEMS,
Inc., the Medical Control Authority for Western Wayne County.
The Department has partnered with two private advanced life support
(ALS) providers as a part of a team approach to emergency medical
response. Community EMS (CEMS) responds to EMS calls in Northville,
while Huron Valley Ambulance (HVA) responds to calls in Plymouth.
The Department is headed by Chief Stephen Ott. He is assisted by a staff
of three Captains and five Lieutenants.
