Fire Department

The Texas Township Fire Department was created in 1947 out of necessity for the township to provide their own Fire Department. The Texas Township Fire Department services all 36 square miles of the township and provides backup to the surrounding municipalities including Oshtemo, Portage, Mattawan, and more.
