Welcome to Daugherty Township Volunteer Fire Department
Daugherty Fire would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
Daugherty Township Fire Department just received a grant from FEMA. This money will be used to replace twenty plus years old self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and a new compressor that will be used to fill these with breathing air. It had come to a point that our current SCBA could not be repaired because parts were no longer available. The grant was made possible by Chief Brad Stone.
August 7, 2017 Daugherty VFD just received a new to us heavy rescue. The heavy rescue is a 1997 Quality. It was purchased from Marshall Township VFD. It was purchased through the Fire Fighter Relief Association. No taxpayer money was used in the purchase of this equipment.
