The Bainbridge Township Fire Department proudly protects approximately 12,000 people living in an area of 25 square miles. We operate out of one centrally located station that responds to approximately 2,000 fire and emergency medical requests annually. Our department is staffed all day, every day with at least six full or part-time members mostly being Paramedics.

We have an ISO rating of "5" in the areas with hydrants and "8B" elsewhere. Our mission is to reduce these ratings even further with the next evaluation.

The Bainbridge Township Fire Department was established by a group of civic minded individuals in 1942. We have since become one of the most active fire departments in Geauga County. Our department is believed to have the first volunteer rescue squad ambulance in Ohio (1950).

Bainbridge Township is located 26 miles southeast of Cleveland, Ohio where St. Rt. 306 intersects with U.S. 422. Bainbridge Township is a rapidly developing area mostly zoned residential of various economic classes. There are some commercial and industrial areas, too.
