Plainfield Fire Department

Plainfield Fire Department provides Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services to the Residents
of Plainfield Charter Township in Kent County, Michigan.

PRESS RELEASE

Plainfield Charter Township was awarded a FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant to implement a residential smoke alarm and home safety program for our residents. Over the next 11 months, the Plainfield Fire Department (PFD) will provide and install smoke alarms for Plainfield Charter Township residents who are considered members of a highrisk population. PFD firefighters will install both photoelectric and ionization smoke alarms with a 10 year tamper proof battery per NFPA standards in homes where there are no smoke alarms and replace any that are 10 years or more old. Per FEMA guidelines, the department must install the detectors. Installation will take approximately 30 minutes, and you must be home. Firefighters will install smoke alarms using double sided tape and provide a safety survey of your home. This program is free to all homeowners in Plainfield Charter Township who meet the requirements of the program.

A Letter to the State of Michigan Legislators:
"Taxpayers expect government to be prepared and fire departments to provide a wide range of services, as a result call volumes are increasing. At the same time funds are decreasing for hiring or maintaining full-time personnel, and it is more difficult to recruit and retain volunteer or paid on call fire fighters to maintain a sufficient force to provide these services.

"The Michigan Association of Fire Chiefs (MAFC) is pleased to present Michigan legislators an introduction to the Michigan fire service and offer assistance as you address issues that will affect the services we provide for our residents and communities."
