About Us

Fire safety services are provided to Village & Township residents in a joint effort by the Village of Sparta and Sparta Township. Both the Village and the Township fund the Sparta Fire Department to ensure that a high level of fire safety is provided to their residents.

The Sparta Fire Board is composed of a total of six members. Two members are from the Sparta Village Council and two members are from the Sparta Township Board of Trustees, the final two members are appointed citizens from the community. These board members are responsible to guide the department’s operations. The Sparta Fire Department Board appointed Daniel Olney as Fire Chief to direct the day to day operations of the fire department. The Fire Board meetings are held at the Sparta Fire Station, 45 N. State Street, on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm.

Chief Olney supervises a staff of 30 on-call firefighters.
