The Aboite Township Volunteer Fire Department is working with Allen County officials to form a fire protection district for unincorporated Aboite Township (those areas outside of the Ft Wayne city limits).  This fire protection district would allow the Department to have full time personnel on duty 24/7/365.  This new fire protection model has been deemed necessary as we have seen an explosion of population growth in our area as well as a decrease in volunteer firefighters.  Currently we have 2 medics on duty 24/7 and 2 weekday daytime firefighters.  Any fire calls at night and on weekends are responded to by our volunteer staff. 


There are more details on the proposed fire district in this presentation and the tax implications can be found here. 


In order to bring this valuable, life-saving service to our community we are asking residents to attend the Allen County Commissioners public hearing scheduled for the morning of Friday, December 2nd to voice their support.  The meeting time will be announced soon.

Aboite Township Volunteer Fire Department is located in the Southwest section of Allen County in Northeast Indiana. A total of eleven fire, EMS, and rescue apparatus respond to emergency dispatched calls from two stations. The department has been in operation since 1982 with all volunteers on a pager alert system for all emergency calls in the township. Since 1996, Aboite has provided two Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT-B / EMT-A) 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to service the medical emergencies of the community.
