Those we serve

STFD operates 24/7 365 from two firehouses. Staffing from 6-9 cross-trained Firefighter/Emt or Firefighter/Paramedics. We employ Full-time, Part-time, and volunteer members. Covering 50.6 square miles, including the City of Ontario, Springfield, and Sandusky Townships, we answered 2133 calls for service in 2019. As of the 2020 census shows, 11,064 are living in Springfield township and the City of Ontario. Sandusky Township recorded a population of 1,002. The department covers 12,068 residents and thousands of visitors daily to our many shopping, entertainment, service, and restaurant establishments in the City of Ontario.

Ontario, Ohio, Specially Lexington-Springmill, is well known for its commercial and small industrial setting. Shoppers come from 5/6 counties around Richland and Ontario City to shop. Ontario can see approximately 30,000 transients daily coming into our community to shop, work, eat, or even for its beautiful parks. Many come to eat or catch a movie at the local Cinema. Our Industrial zoned area is growing faster than ever as well. Approximately 300,000 sqft of businesses will be added within the next two years.

Avita Hospital is located in Ontario with a fully functioning heart cath lab housing 185,137sqft of much of the open space in the Mall. Ohio Health also operates a free-standing emergency room in our city. Three urgent cares and a vast array of medical offices are located in the City of Ontario. Springfield Township and Ontario both have railways going into/through daily. US Route 30 splits Springfield Twp. in half and acts as a major artery to access the community from the East and West.


Many well-known retail, food and home improvement businesses call Ontario home. The two hospitals provide excellent services for many in a vast area.

The district is a major regional retail hub serving North-Central Ohio, with a shopping population of over 150,000. The city's industry has since diversified into a service economy, including education, finance, and healthcare.
