The Covert Township Fire Department is a combination fire department that provides high quality Fire, Rescue and EMS services to its citizens, workers and visitors. Our fire station is staffed 24/7/365 by Career Firefighter/Paramedics who are supplemented by Part-Time and Paid-On-Call firefighters. Covert Township also has several Public Safety Officers (Police Officers cross-trained as Firefighters) who respond to fire and EMS calls while on patrol. We respond to approximately 700 calls per year.
We work closely with our surrounding agencies and have strong Fire, Rescue and EMS mutual aid agreements with South Haven Area Emergency Services, Bangor Community Fire Department, Watervliet Fire Department, Hartford Fire Department, North Berrien Fire Department, Pride Care Ambulance & Medic 1 ambulance.
