  • If there is an emergency, how do I contact you?
    In case of an emergency, DIAL 9-1-1 The dispatchers will notify the correct emergency responders to help mitigate the issue. For non-emergencies, call us at 330-725-0911 and leave a message - we will return your call as soon as possible.

  • How do I learn more about becoming a volunteer firefighter for Litchfield Fire & Rescue?
    Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can stop up on any Thursday evening between 7-9 pm. Otherwise, call us at 330.725.0911, leave a message, and someone will call you back. You need no previous experience; we will provide you with all the training you’ll need. Requirements are a high school diploma, drivers’ license, and passing a background check and basic physical. We’d love for you to join our team!
  • What can you tell me about the hydrants in Litchfield Township?
    Litchfield has less than 10% pressurized hydrants. If there is a fire, this means we have to either haul water with tankers or use a static water source such as dry hydrants or ponds for the other 90% of the township.
  • What is the ISO/PPC rating I keep hearing about?
    Our fire department is audited every five years by the Insurance Service Office to determine our ISO/PPC (Public Protection Classification) rating. We were audited in 2016 and went from a 7/9 split classification to a 5, which in return should lower our taxpayers’ insurance rates . . . good news for all of us!
