The Rossford Firefighters Association will be hosting the Northwest Ohio Volunteer Firefighters Association’s 143rd annual firefighters convention June 16-17, 2017. Thousands of firefighters and their families will be in Rossford that weekend for this annual event. This will give us an opportunity to show Northwest Ohio our community, and what a great place it is to live. The convention will have events starting Friday, including a Waterball Tournament, Queen’s Pageant, and Friday night parade of fire trucks from 6pm until 11pm up and down Dixie Hwy., and end with a Friday night party with a live band. There will be hundreds of people camping in our community, as well as all the local hotels will be reserved and full.
Saturday will start early, and there will be many other activities that will take place ending with a parade starting at Lime City and Schreier Rd to Dixie Hwy and ending at the railroad tracks at the end of the city. This parade attracts thousands annually and lasts about two hours. Awards, and all raffles will be done after the parade. There will be a lot of opportunities of local businesses to benefit from this convention.
Planning for this large event started last year and the Rossford Firefighters Association is looking for local sponsors to help make this convention one of the biggest and best in recent memory. You can kind of compare the City’s 100-year centennial in 1998 and how big that event was.

Over the past couple of months I have interacted with many of our residents and there seems to be some misunderstanding about how we are staffed. We ARE NOT staffed 24 hours a day. We have 2 people on duty 7 days a week from 8 o’clock in the morning until 4 o’clock in the afternoon. After that ALL department members respond from home. We do the VERY BEST to serve you with dollars given. If anyone has any questions please contact me at 419 666 0210 extension 230. Thank you for your continued support !

Well folks, the day has finally arrived. We are happy and excited to show off our two brand new medic units in the same picture. As you may recall, Medic 29 went and had the box removed and placed onto a brand new 2014 gas chassis. Upon the return of Medic 29, Medic 30 went out and had the same thing done. After months of waiting for Medic 30 to return, the day has finally arrived! We are happy to share that both Medic 29 and Medic 30 are in quarters and ready for action. Thank you for your continued support.

As some of you may recall, last year Medic 29 went to Burgess to get remounted on a new chassis. With the success of this remount, it was decided to also remount Medic 30 and give it a brand new look. Attached are the pictures throughout the process of the remount. We are hoping for a return in the next couple weeks. Enjoy the pictures and let us know what you think!
