Community Outreach

Community Events

Several times a year MTVFD participates in community events including Marshall Township Community Day, Touch a Truck, Easter Egg, and Santa Claus events.

Station Tours

Station tours can be arranged and given on an individual or group basis.

Invite Us to Your Neighborhood Events

We will send a fire truck and firefighters. We love coming to children’s parties, birthdays, neighborhood block parties, or company events.

Watch Us Train

MTVFD has training at least twice a month – typically Tuesday nights and usually at one of our fire stations. You may observe these sessions, although certain rules must be followed to insure everyone’s safety.

Invite the Fire Department to Train in Your Neighborhood

  • We require a 21-day notice before the scheduled training.
  • Booking an event will depend on the type of training and the availability of appropriate space. At a minimum, we will require a dead end road, field or cul-de-sac.
  • The event must to located in Marshall Township.

Fire Safety Presentations for Schools and Groups

It’s a proven fact that the kindergarten and elementary children we instruct, remember the critical information of how to dial 911, stop drop and roll, and what to do when faced with a crisis situation.

We also come to nursery schools. When a firefighter is dressed in gear, he can look scary. So scary that a child might hide in a real emergency. The program is designed to introduce firemen friends to very young children.

Freddie The Fire Truck, a fully animated fire truck robot, is available. He speaks, listens, and sounds his siren. He’s just the right size for teaching young children. He communicates with them at their eye level. He’s perfect for hugs and kisses from small friends. He’s agile enough to maneuver easily in small, crowded areas.

Our Fire Safety House Make Learning Fun

Our Fire Safety House (FiSH) is available for larger groups (generally elementary school age). Perfect for school classes, youth organizations like Scouts, and community events. Our mobile FiSH has a living room, kitchen and bedroom which allows children to be immersed in an interactive, fire safety experience.

We Train Our Own Kids Too!


To arrange for any of these programs: call 724-935-1230 or email.

We have extensive materials available for viewing and download on our Fire Safety & Prevention Page.
