1964 – Sheridan and Albion townships organized a joint fire department called Sheridan Albion Township Fire Department. Prior to this, the townships housed their fire trucks at the Albion city fire station and they provided 1 full time fire fighter per shift. The station was located at our current location at 29 mile road and C Drive North. Jerry Sandusky was the first Chief, Harold Wilbur and Don Bienz were full time fire fighters.

1972 – Harold Wilbur becomes Chief

1988 – Harold Wilbur retires and Jerry Macqueen becomes Chief

1994 – Sheridan and Albion Township dissolve the Sheridan Albion Township fire department. Sheridan Township continues as the Sheridan Township fire department. Lance Lohrke was hired as chief and Darrell Lewis as Assistant Chief.

Formed Jan. 1, 1995, the Sheridan Township Fire Department is staffed 24/7 and provides fire protection and heavy rescue for the 2200 residents of Sheridan Township. We respond to 125 Fire, Haz-Mat, and Extrication calls each year. The township is diversified in its makeup including agriculture, residential, and industrial. We also cover 6 miles of I-94.
