About Miami Township Fire-Rescue

Miami Township Fire-Rescue is a primarily volunteer department consisting of three full-time employees, part-time employees, and dozens of volunteer members. We provide Advanced Life Support (ALS) emergency medical transportation, fire prevention and suppression, rescue services, and safety education to the residents and over 1 million annual visitors to our service area. MTFR responds to emergencies in a 24 square mile area, encompassing the villages of Clifton and Yellow Springs and the unincorporated parts of Miami Township. This area includes also John Bryan State Park, the Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, the Glen Helen Ecology Institute and Antioch College. Services are provided from two fire stations, located in Yellow Springs (Station 81) and Clifton (Station 82).

MTFR’s full-time employees include Chief Colin Altman, Asst. Chief Denny Powell and Lt. Nate Ayers who provide weekday coverage along with part-time staff members and available volunteers. Department volunteers provide weeknight and weekend coverage.

We are funded both through a property tax levy that has consistently received overwhelming support during elections as well as by EMS Transport Billing which became effective October 1st, 2007.
