Organization and Staffing
The Fire Department consists of a Director of Public Safety, a Fire Chief and Fire Marshal, a full-time Fire Inspector and EMS Coordinator, as well as 12 paid on-call and part-time Firefighter/EMTs.
The Department responds to over 1200 calls for service annually within the ten square miles of Wixom. Paid on-call Firefighters complete several hundred hours of training over a two year period to become certified as Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians. Additionally, Firefighters receive specialty training in hazardous materials, confined space entry, and technical rescue, as well as ice rescue and open water rescue.
The Wixom Fire Department provides full service; Firefighters respond to a myriad of calls for emergency service, the majority of them medical emergencies. However, Firefighters respond to odor investigations, downed and low hanging wires, carbon monoxide and smoke alarms, hazardous material spills, vehicle accidents and fires.
The City has mutual aid agreements with all our surrounding communities and is a member of the Michigan Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MI-MABAS), to share and receive resources.
Fire Department Headquarters is located at 1345 N. Wixom Road, and operates a fleet of emergency vehicles and specialty equipment including two fire engines, two ambulances, a platform ladder, a heavy rescue, two brush fire units, a boat and technical rescue trailer.
