Groveland Township is located in north Oakland County in southwestern Michigan and covers 36 square miles. The Township has over 5,000 acres of State land and is known for it's large estate size parcels and recreational amenities. Mt. Holly, several state/county and local camps, as well as the Michigan Renaissance Festival provide year-round entertainment to locals and visitors alike.
The fire department consists of 68 active members responding from two stations. The department is staffed with a minimum of two people at Station 1 and two people as well at station 2, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The fire department provides advanced life support treatment and transportation service with a response time averaging 4 minutes. The department will respond to 2200+ calls this year (2247 calls in 2013), most being of a medical nature. We also protect over 7 miles of Interstate 75, so many incidents involving motor vehicle accidents are also encountered.
Our goal is to treat everyone we respond to as family. We understand the stress involved during and accident, medical emergency or fire. Helping people and their families through an incident is often as important as the treatment an injured person receives. We treat everyone involved the way we'd want our families treated.
We are ALWAYS looking for healthy men & women to join our team, please call the Chief if you're interested in helping your community!
