Serving the communities of Franklin, Bingham Farms, and Southfield Township since 1937, the members of the Department provide services in the areas of fire response, emergency medical services, and technical response.
Our mission is to serve residents, neighbors and all citizens when called to action. We create value by executing our services in a cost effective, high quality manner.
Have you always wanted to be a fire fighter? Now is the perfect time! We are always looking for qualified candidates to add to the ranks of our department.
Citizens over the age of 18 are welcome to apply for membership with the department. Unlike a majority of fire departments, not every volunteer with the Franklin-Bingham Fire Department is required to live or work in the areas we serve. While living close by is important, we value the skills performed in accomplishing "station duty" in addition to incident response. The benefits of this program are to not only maintain responders from the area, but to also accomplish the daily operational needs we are faced with in addition to bolstering our daytime response capabilities. With this in mind, the following chart describe station duty requirements (day/weekday performance) for volunteers of the department:
|Classification||Required Station Duty|
|Probationary Status||4 hours per week|
|Reside 6-20 miles from station||4 hours per week|
|Reside > 20 miles from station||8 hours per week|
|Support Group||As required/approved by Chief of Dept.|
