Fire Protection Services
Hello, and welcome to the section of our website dedicated to fire protection. I'm Gary Hamilton and since late 2015, I have served as the Townships Fire Official, overseeing all fire and rescue operations. I am also the Fire Chief for the North Fayette Township Volunteer Fire Department. Fire Protection in the Township is primarily provided by the North Fayette Township Volunteer Fire Department (NFTVFD).
The North Fayette Township Volunteer Fire Department is one of the busier departments in the western suburbs, in 2016, the NFTVFD answered 343 fire / rescue related calls and assisted with 93 EMS / Medical calls. With a township as diverse as North Fayette, we answer calls in all types of different situations and locations from busy shopping and commercial centers to residential housing plans and farms.
The NFTVFD has a very active Fire Prevention program, every fall we visit most of the preschool and daycare centers in the township to spread the word about being fire safe each and every day.
The fire department is always looking for community members who want to help and dedicate some time and effort back to the community in which they live. The need is not just for firefighters, those who have the desire to help out and have knowledge in accounting and finance, Information Technology and just about any other field can be an asset to the department. Please contact us at 412-787-2883 or to learn more about our services and how you can help.
We are very fortunate to have great assistance from our mutual aid fire departments that surround us. In the southern end of the township, along the Noblestown road corridor, we have enjoyed great partnership and service for many years from the Oakdale, Sturgeon and McDonald fire departments. In the Northern portion of the township we get assistance from the Imperial and Moon Run Fire Departments who are called to help when the situation requires it.
Should you ever have any questions regarding fire protection and the way it is provided please feel free to contact me at 724-693-3081 or via email.
