Portland Area Fire Authority is an Intergovernmental partnership between Portland and Danby Townships and the City of Portland

Our department is paid-on-call, and our commitment to active training allows us to provide professional fire suppression and rescue services to each jurisdiction.

The Department is headquartered in the Emergency Services Building, 773 E Grand River Ave., Portland, MI, along with the Portland Police Department and the Portland Ambulance Service.  This arrangement provides seamless service to the coverage area, along with the Ionia County Sheriff’s Department and the Michigan State Police covering the Townships.
