On this day... 18 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001.
In one single moment life may never be the same. Tonight, before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.

We will never forget! 🇺🇸 9/11/01

Our firefighters will be out flowing fire hydrants throughout the township this month. We flow hydrants to check their function and to remove rust and other sediment. Hydrant flushing sometimes stirs up sediment in the water lines and results in temporarily brown or "rusty" water in nearby homes and businesses.

If you should have a problem with rusty water, you can flush the rusty water out of your pipes by fully opening a faucet and running cold water until the water runs clear.

This week we want to take some time to remember two of our own, Eric Carpenter and Gene Shepherd.
Eric passed away 10 years ago on May 19th. You might see the clover emblem with the number 5 on our trucks. That was Eric’s badge number and our way of keeping him with us wherever we go.
Gene passed away 7 years ago on May 14th. His name might sound familiar to Shelby Residents. Chief Gene Shepherd Park, located on 23 mile Road, east of Dequindre, was dedicated to our beloved Chief 5 years ago. His leadership created a foundation for our department that we are still building on today.
