The original township building was constructed in 1952, including space for the fire department. In 1968, three "double deep" bays were added to house six fire vehicles, with another upgrade in 2005.
The department consists of full-time and paid-on-call firefighters. All fire fighters are Fire I & II certified, have Hazmat Operations and are MFE, EMT or Paramedic licensed.
The fire department schedules its crews for calls to service 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. During the week and weekend, crews are obligated to remain in the township to ensure quick response to the citizens of Allendale.
Allendale firefighters respond to: Fires, Medical calls, HazMat Emergencies, Auto accidents, Fire alarms, Public Events, and many other service calls.
