Township Board Special Meeting January 17, 2018 @ 5:00 PM 

Chief Theo Weber's last day at Grand Traverse Rural Fire Department will be 12-31-17, and Paradise Township wishes him well and thanks him for his dedication to protecting our residents. The dissolution of Grand Traverse Rural Fire Department will take place in just over 3 months, and has put in motion some positive changes for our township.

After 45 years of contracting with the Kingsley Ambulance Association, the township board has decided to end the relationship and take a big leap. 

With the help of Blair Township's Fire and EMS management team, we've begun the foundation for our own department.  Our agreement with the Kingsley Ambulance Association will end on March 31st, and beginning 4-1-18 Paradise Township  will employ a total of 7 people.  There will be 2 full time cross trained EMT/Firefighters on duty, as well as paid on call personnel  to provide 24/7/365 coverage for our community.  We are fortunate to have many volunteer firefighters and ambulance personnel work countless hours ensuring our safety and well-being, and this continued dedication will solidify our success in this new endeavor.

Have a safe and happy holiday!
