Fire Divisions

 

Assistant Chief Mark Fyffe oversees the Administrative, Operations, and Training Divisions of the department.  

 Administration

The responsibilities of the administrative division include budget and finance, payroll, accreditation, quality assurance, fire and emergency medical services data entry, policy implementation and development, life safety, scheduling, monthly and annual reporting and documentation, licensing, information technology liaison, and other general day-to-day non-emergency needs of the department.

Operations

The Operations Division is comprised of the personnel who respond to emergency incidents from five fire stations strategically located throughout Union Township.  The division is responsible for ensuring a rapid, professional, and competent response to, and control of, a wide range of emergency incidents by the department.  Members assigned to a fire station serve in dual roles as firefighters and paramedics and are responsible for providing the best fire suppression and emergency medical services possible.

 Training

A station lieutenant serves as the training officer and manages most of the day-to-day training issues. Training is conducted daily, usually by the company officer conducting a hands-on morning drill and then again in the evening with a book-type drill.  As a State of Ohio Certified EMS training site, members are awarded continuing education credits.

The department also has a physician who is responsible to oversee and underwrite the emergency medical service operation of the Department.  Bill Hinckley, MD, is the Department's medical director and works closely with the Administrative Division to ensure that the citizens are receiving the best possible care.

Bill Hinckley, MD, is board certified in emergency medicine and EMS, and is an associate professor of emergency medicine at UC.  A majority of his clinical practice is spent in the EMS setting, working as a UC Health Air Care & Mobile Care flight physician, though he also works clinically in the emergency departments of both UC Medical Center and West Chester Hospital.  Bill graduated from medical school at Indiana University in 2000, and completed residency and chief residency at UC in 2004.  He has served as Air Care's medical director since 2006.  Bill is a past president of the Air Medical Physician Association, and was inducted into the International Guild of Senior Helicopter Retrievalists as a founding member in 2014.
