The Palmer Municipal Fire Department has been serving the Palmer Township Community for more then 35 years. We are a totally volunteer department with the exception of the Fire Commissioner who is an employee of the township. The buildings and equipment are fully funded by the taxpayers of the township with much of the safety equipment being purchased using Fireman's Relief funds.
