Washington Township Volunteer Fire Department

Washington Township Volunteer Fire Department The following article was narrated by George Schmidt the only founding member still active on this fire department with 35 years. Washington Township Volunteer Fire Department was formed in 1975 with 30 members on the roster.The first engine was leased from Liberty Township Volunteer Fire Department for three years for $1.00 per year.We used one bay in the building to the east of the station(not built at this time) which is now Berkheimers.We broke ground in 1976 at 380 East State Road 2 which was donated by Indiana General and this was the start of the new station.The station was built by Chesters and the interior was completed by members of the fire department.We started parking the engine in one bay at the end of summer 1976 and the interior was completed in spring of 1977.In 1977 the members built the first 2000 gallon tanker on a used Chevy chassis and aquired a 6 x 6 military chassis for the next tanker.

We also aquired from the military a brush truck that was also built by the members of the department.In 1978 the department took delivery of a new 1977 Ford pumper built by Quality Manufacturing and was in service until 2005.In 1981 we took delivery of a 1980 Chevy Mini Pumper the first truck built by Hoosier Fire in Valparaiso.In 1989 we took delivery of a new 1988 GMC pumper built by Quality.In 1991 and 1992 we added five more truck bays to the station giving us a total of seven bays.In 1999 we took delivery of two used trucks,one custom cab seven man 1988 E-One Hurricane Pumper and a 2500 gallon tanker made by Becker and these are still in service.In 2005 we took delivery of our first new custom cab engine a Toyne with a Spartan cab which is our first out engine.We purchased in 2007 a new Ford Expedition Incident Command vehicle that is driven by the chief and a Ford F550 Lifestar Rescue Airvan with a six bottle 6000 psi fill system with containment.We just took delivery in 2010 of a Kenworth/Toyne 3000 gallon tanker.We still maintain a 30 to 35 member roster and are always looking for new members.

Call to Action from local fire departments!

Local departments need your help in clearing of fire hydrants near your home. With subzero temps incoming again and the amount of snow on the ground at this point it’s essential to clear these hydrants.

Seconds are valuable this time of year when fighting fires is at a high. With all the frozen snow / ice this would hinder valuable time in getting fires extinguished. Departments are asking for residents to “adopt a hydrant” and keep it clear for emergencies.

Great information from Griffith Fire Department.  Make sure to keep snow and ice clear from your gas meter.

Great information from Griffith Fire Department. Make sure to keep snow and ice clear from your gas meter.

Ice and snow accumulation can interfere with the proper operation of the gas meter given it needs to be able to release gas in case of a malfunction. Snow removal activities can also pose a hazard to the gas meter assembly or piping and result in a dangerous leak.
Follow these guidelines when removing snow and/or ice:
• Make sure whoever removes snow from your property is aware if your gas meter is near a sidewalk or driveway
• Use a broom – not a shovel – to clear snow from meter assembly and vents.
• If your gas meter is encased in ice, do not attempt to melt and/or chip the ice, as this could damage the meter. Allow the ice to melt on its own.
• Pay particular attention when moving snow on a commercial lot. Don’t pile snow around gas meters.
• Consider installing driveway entrance reflectors around gas meters if they’re close to a road or driveway.
• If you suspect a gas leak call 911 immediately.

Great Job Matt!

Great Job Matt!

This is Matt Mettenburg. Matt was on a 9-1-1 call regarding an abandoned child yesterday in Munster. While the child was at the police department, Matt went to the store and bought a bunch of items for the child! A representative from Munster called his GM to say how impressed they are with Matt. We are impressed too! Great job and amazing compassion -- thank you, Matt!! #HeroesWorkHere #SuperiorStrong

Assistant Chief Dwayne Tate on the nozzle followed by FF Amy Franiak and FF Larry Putman at TEEX for some live Industrial FF training :)
Hello, I am interested in setting up a time on June 30 for the department to come and do a demo for kids at Summer Camp at Perpetual Motion in Valparaiso. If someone can reach out to me at 219-476-7209 that would be much appreciated!
Good evening. My name is Michelle. I'm from Tulsa Oklahoma I have a friend that has a 12 year old little boy that has down syndrome and his family is making him a blanket made up of fire department patches and I would like to know if your department would be willing to donate a patch for him. Please get back to me. Thanks so much.
