**Thompson Township is excited to be hosting the 4-H Fire Explorers Club

Thompson Volunteer Fire Department was formed in 1980 with 19 volunteers and a 1963 Tanker. Past Fire Chiefs include Larry Zentner, Richard Forstner, James Foster, John Stapleton, Corey Frankovich, and Marc Cheuvront. We currently have 12 volunteers. We have a 2000 gallon capacity tanker and a 2000 gallon capacity pumper along with a brush truck as the main vehicles. All new turnout gear (jackets, pants, helmets, boots, gloves, etc) were purchase in 2004 using FEMA funds from the Federal Government. We have also received several smaller grants from the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians and the Department of Natural Resources. If you would like more information on becoming a volunteer firefighter, please contact the Fire Chief or our Township Supervisor.
