Under the direction of Chief Matthew Simmons, the Troy Fire Department provides fire protection and emergency medical services to the City of Troy as well as Concord, Staunton and portions of Lost Creek Townships. The Troy Fire Department utilizes a 24/48 schedule with three shifts each working every third day (24 hour on 48 hours off). The current staffing model is 1 Platoon Commander (PC) and 10 Firefighter/Paramedics per shift who provide response to any emergency. This complement allows us to maintain our current 8-person minimum staffing level per day. The Troy Fire Department also provides a fully staffed Fire Prevention Bureau who performs fire investigations, fire safety inspections and plans reviews as well as issuing fire protection permits. The Fire Prevention Bureau staff also operates an interactive fire education program as well as offering a Juvenile Fire Setters counseling program.
