About the Department
Deckerville Fire Department covers a territory of approximately 97 square miles. This is one of the biggest coverage areas in Sanilac County. Deckerville Fire Department has a fleet of 2 engines, a 4000 gallon vacuum tanker, a utility van, a Jaws/Grass pickup, a covered trailer with a Rhino UTV with tracks and a rescue sled for the snowmobile trails. The UTV is also equipped in warm weather months with a water skid unit to use for grass & brush fires. This allows it to get to where normal vehicles are unable to reach. Last year, the community donated enough money to purchase the Rhino UTV at a cost of over $10,000. Deckerville Fire Department would like to thank everyone for their continued support!
Burning permits are issued through via the Municipal Building (during business hours) at (810) 376-9505 or via Chief Tracy Hoff at (810) 531-5714. Permits are free; however, if you fail to get one and the fire department is dispatched, you'll be fined $1,500 for the fire run.
