Yates Township Fire Department

The original Yates Township Fire Department building, located on Lake Dr. in Idlewild was established in 1949. The new addition was completed in 1965.

In 2007, MIOSHA closed the building due to safety standards. Yates Township then gave the building located at 2155 E US-10 to the Department. Plans were immediately drawn up for new truck bays. 

By 2008, the Yates Township Firefighters began moving into the new location on US-10.

Fire Chief: Eric Meehan
