A Letter from the ChiefCanton Ohio Fire Department

Greetings from the Canton Fire Department! 

As Chief, I would first like to say thanks to those citizens of Canton, Ohio who have supported the fine men and women of the fire service. Our dedicated personnel spend countless hours training in order to provide the best service to those in need. We welcome anyone or group who would like to meet firefighter/paramedics and tour a station. If this is your desire, please call our Administration Building to arrange a tour. Please note, that at any time, our firefighters could be called to respond to an emergency during the tour.
