Newaygo Fire Department

Newaygo Fire Department
The Newaygo Fire Department proudly services 56 square miles in Newaygo County. This includes all of Brooks Township, approximately sixty (60) percent of Garfield Township, and the City of Newaygo.

Our area is made up of residential inhabitants and resorts. We have wooded sections along with several lakes and streams. The change in seasons brings a variance in population due to the amount of retirees that live in our area and the large amount of tourists during that season.

The Newaygo Fire Department is a small, modest, rural department and has one station. Fire suppression, rescue from heights, water rescue, and vehicle rescue are among services provided. The Newaygo Fire Department also enjoys strong mutual aid relationships with all departments in the Newaygo County area.  

If you have any questions feel free to stop by the station or give us a call and one of our firefighters will be happy to assist you!
