Perrysburg Fire Division, which has a Class 3/3x ISO Public Protection Classification, operates out of two fire stations - Station 38 located at 140 W Indiana Ave and Station 39 located at 26100 Fort Meigs Road. The Fire Division not only provides Fire and EMS protection to over 25,000 residents and 12 square miles within the City of Perrysburg, but also provides and receives mutual aid services to the adjacent cities and townships. The Fire Division responds to an average of 500 fire calls and 2,300 EMS calls annually. The Perrysburg Fire Division is dedicated to providing the highest quality EMS, fire protection, and education to the citizens that we serve.
The City of Perrysburg is proud of the fact that all full-time personnel are State of Ohio Certified Paramedics.
Currently, the paramedic certification is a requirement to take the civil service test for a full-time position. With the paramedic training curriculum taking a year or longer to complete, this requirement saves the City of Perrysburg a year of training for new hires to become productive members of the Fire Division.
Our paramedics provide state-of-the-art care to all those who live, work, shop, and pass through our community. Some of the procedures and interventions performed on a daily basis are intravenous access (IV's), 12 Lead EKG monitoring, capnography (measuring oxygen in the blood), blood glucose tests, spinal immobilizing, and aerosol breathing treatments.
Several free services provided by the Perrysburg Fire Division are invalid assists and blood pressure screenings. It is not uncommon for the disabled to fall, but not become injured. The Perrysburg Fire Division will come out to our residents' homes and help to assist them free of charge providing they are not transported to a hospital.
A second free service is blood pressure and vital sign screening. It is not uncommon when physicians prescribe a new medication that a patient has their vital signs checked for a period of time. We provide free vital sign screening at the Fire Station, 140 W Indiana Avenue.
