SYLVANIA FIRE – EMS DEPARTMENT – FIREHOUSES
Firehouses are the heart of the fire department. They serve as central locations to house firefighters, fire apparatus and equipment between calls for service. Our firehouses serve as training locations for firefighters to improve their skills, and public service locations to check blood pressures and educate children and adults alike on fire safety. Feel free to stop by your local firehouse for a tour or to ask any fire or safety related questions you may have.
6633 Monroe St.
Sylvania, Ohio 43560
Located diagonally across Monroe Street from the City of Sylvania Government Center, Firehouse #1 serves the northern and western half of the City and Township of Sylvania. Engine #61 is first due to Flower Hospital, Lourdes University, Northview High School, Maplewood, Highland, and Sylvan Elementary schools as well as St. Joseph School and historic downtown Sylvania. Built in 2013 to replace the original firehouse built in 1930, it is the newest firehouse in Sylvania and is the last to be replaced from the capital improvements promised from the 2008 tax levy. Thank You Sylvania!

They also are responsible for responding to all areas of the expressway (US23 and I-475) that runs through the city and township with Engine Co 61 or 62 depending on the location of the incident.
