Frederic Township Fire Department
Frederic Fire Department was awarded an AFG grant to buy new battery operated Jaws Rescue tools. We tried out two different brands of tools; Holmatro and Hurst. Both companies demonstrated their tools and preformed very well. Special thank you to AuSable Towing and Recovery for supplying the fire department with a vehicle for our test and training.
Frederic Fire had the privilege of hosting our local HeadStart program at our station. Staff was able to provide great training to these young kiddos! They learned Stop, Drop, & Roll as well as how to crawl out of a potentially hazardous situations. Our crew put on full structural gear and SCBA to show the kids who is underneath all our gear. 
In October of 2022 FTFD had the privilege of partnering with Servpro of Grayling for Fire Prevention Month. Servpro donated 75 smoke detectors, 20 fire safety tip bags for children, and a basket of goodies for our staff. Huge thank you to Servpro for their continuous support!
