Fire Department

Chief Thomas GarraGreetings from the Canton Fire Department!

As Chief, I would first like to say thanks for those citizens of Canton, Ohio who have supported the fine men and women of the fire service. Our dedicated personnel spend countless hours in training in order to provide the best service to those in need. We welcome anyone or group who would like to meet firefighter/paramedics and tour a station. If this is your desire, please call our Administration Building to arrange a tour. Please note, that at anytime, our firefighters could be called to respond to an emergency during the tour.
