About Us

Established in 1946, the Washington Township Firefighters Association is a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to serve the Washington Township Fire Department and its members. In years past the Association has used proceeds from its fundraising efforts to purchase new 2-way radios, tone activated radio systems, firefighting tools, EMS equipment, safety products, and firefighter apparel. Most recently the proceeds from the 65th Annual Ice Cream Social were used to purchase GPS units for all frontline apparatus. These units are currently being used every day to respond quickly to those in need.



2017 Goals

Our goal for the 2017 year is to continue to build off of our recent success.  We hope The Association can maintain a solid financial state which allows us to support our current projects while investing and developing new and innovated ways to serve the department and our community. We hope to make our 69th Annual Ice Cream Social one of the best ever by starting early with the help of our local community! We hope that the Association can continue to serve the Washington Township Fire Department, its members and the residents of the Washington Township/Centerville community to our highest potential.


All members of the Washington Township Fire Department are members of the Association. However, certain members maintain an active status within the Association by participating regularly. The Washington Township Firefighters Association is ran by a 6 person executive board. These position are voted on by members with individuals serving a 1 year team in their respective positions. After one year candidates may run for re-election or another office position.
