Always Ready to Serve the City

The Clawson Fire Department provides fire protection to the citizens and businesses of Clawson. The department consists of 30 part-paid volunteer fire fighters, currently led by Chief Troy Engel, who are all highly trained and skilled. All of the members of our department complete state certified FireFighter I and II training courses, along with completing a state monitored written and practical exam. Additionally, it is required that all members of the Clawson Fire Department must be residents of the City of Clawson.

We are on-call 24 hours a day and respond to any fire, rescue, and extrication emergencies that occur within the city. Members are also part of the Oakland County Strategic Response Unit (SRU) which provides specialized high angle rescue, hazardous materials and confined space rescues.  The Clawson Fire Department was started in 1922 to provide fire services to the Village of Clawson and covered Troy Township (City of Troy) as well. Even in the early years, the department made it a practice to send at least three members a year to the annual state fire college to keep up-to-date with the latest training and drills.

In the early days, City Hall and courts shared the second floor of the original firehouse. As the city grew so did the department, and in 1980 the current fire station was built which provides space for three apparatus and other equipment. To Request Fire Reports send a check for $5 to: Clawson Fire Department 425 N. Main St., Clawson, MI 48017.
