Historically, the beginnings of the Germantown Fire Department dates to December 28, 1832, when an ordinance was passed which authorized the appointment of two men to serve as fire inspectors. Four months later, a follow-up ordinance was passed requiring each household to be equipped with a leather fire bucket.

In May 1836, the Germantown Fire Engine and Hose Co. was organized to operate on a five-year basis. In November of the same year, another ordinance was passed requiring all able-bodied men and women to respond to fire alarms with their fire bucket.

Today the Germantown Fire Department provides fire prevention, fire suppression, and rescue services utilizing paid-on-call firefighters. We are allowed to be staffed with 28 members, including one full time position: Fire Chief.

The Storm Water Management Program (SWMP), launched in 2003, is ODOT\'s inter-agency effort to control pollutants in storm water discharge.
