Please be aware during this years celebration of our country with grills and fireworks that caution is needed.  The area is obviously very dry do to lack of rain.  We are lucky in the Allen County area to have our beans and corn green.  The Wheat and grass on the other hand is dry and is very susceptible to just and ember.  Please make sure fire works are in a safe area and used with caution.  Please make sure your charcoal grills are completely out.  Please be kind to your neighbors with your festivities.  Thank You from American Twp FD.


    The Mission of the American Township Fire Department is to prevent the loss of life and to control and reduce the loss of property by the use of our professional skills and continued education in Emergency Medical Services, Fire Suppression, Rescue, Code Enforcement, Fire Investigation and Professional Development Training.
