Fire

Thank you for your support!

On behalf of the Jackson Township Fire Department, Township Trustees, Fiscal Officer and Administration, we thank you the voters, for supporting the November 2015 fire levy. It is through your support of the Fire Department that we can continue to answer calls for service, provide fire protection, paramedic transport, building inspections, and public education in this thriving community. As a lifelong resident of this Township, I promise that my staff and I will be good stewards with your tax dollars and will continue to provide the best service possible.
 
To illustrate the significance of a Fire Department in your community, I would like to share with you the “FIRES IN THE US’ statistics from the National Fire Protection Association.

“Fires in the U.S.”

· In 2014, there were 1,298,000 fires reported in the United States. These fires caused 3,275 civilian deaths, 15,775 civilian injuries, and $11.6 billion in property damage.

  • 494,000 were structure fires, causing 2,860 civilian deaths, 13,425 civilian injuries, and $9.8 billion in property damage.
  • 193,500 were vehicle fires, causing 345 civilian fire deaths, 1,450 civilian fire injuries, and $1.5 billion in property damage.
  • 610,500 were outside and other fires, causing 70 civilian fire deaths, 900 civilian fire injuries, and $237 million in property damage.

· The 2014 U.S. Fire Loss clock a fire department responded to a fire every 24 seconds. One structure fire was reported every 64 seconds.

  • One home structure fire was reported every 86 seconds.
  • One civilian fire injury was reported every 33 minutes.
  • One civilian fire death occurred every 2 hours and 41 minutes.
  • One outside and other fire was reported every 52 seconds.
  • One highway vehicle fire was reported every 3 minutes 8 seconds.

We may never eliminate fire and the resulting devastation but we can minimize the impact it has in our community! Thank you for your continued support!
