There are eight fire stations positioned throughout Waterford Township and the City of Pontiac. Each station is strategically located to facilitate the shortest possible response time to any emergency anywhere in the three communities that we serve. We also have one unmanned station that houses our hazmat and special response units.
Boundary lines have been drawn dividing Waterford Township, the City of Lake Angelus and the City of Pontiac into eight sectors based on geographic location, travel distances and traffic conditions proximate to each fire station. When an emergency arises, trucks and personnel are dispatched from the closest fire station ensuring the fastest possible response time.
The average response time of the Waterford Fire Department is four minutes. In other words, help arrives at your door within four minutes of your call to 911.
