About City Of Allen Park

In October of 1988 the City of Allen Park implemented an Enhanced 911 System. The Radio Alarm Operators were then transferred over to the City's 911 Dispatch Center located in the Police Station. This new system allowed the incoming emergency calls to have a simple three-digit number that was recognized throughout the country. The enhanced feature gives the person who answers the phone the location and the name of the person that the phone is registered to. This system has been extremely beneficial to the City's ability to respond to emergency requests. The Allen Park Fire Department did not hire additional personnel for a six-year period. In the first month of 1992 Mr. Mark Hogrebe was hired to the Allen Park Fire Department. In August of 1994 Mr. Dean Love and Mr. John Charvat joined the Allen Park Fire Department. Mr. Charvat resigned in 1995 due to the city's residency policy. At that time new hires were required to live in the city for the first five years of their employment. In 1994 Mr. Michael Stasick and Mr. Steve Heim were hired on to the Allen Park Fire Department. Mr. Heim resigned within a year of receiving his job with the City of Allen Park to work for the City of Lincoln Park where he had grown up. In August of 1995 Mr. Joseph A. Hughes was hired on to the Allen Park Fire Department. In September of 1995 Mr. Douglas D. LaFond was hired on to the Allen Park Fire Department. In 1997 The City of Allen Park began the change in the way the Allen Park Fire Department services rescue (medical) requests within the City of Allen Park. This began one of the largest changes this department has ever encountered. We were a first responder emergency medical technician provider that utilized a private ambulance company to transport the patients to local hospitals. All members attended school to become advanced emergency medical technicians (paramedics). This training took around nine months of class work and clinical rotations to become eligible to take the State of Michigan examination for licensure. The Allen Park Fire Department started operating as an advanced life support emergency medical provider. We progressed from a non-transporting basic life support provider to a transporting advanced provider in about fourteen months. This time was utilized to purchase equipment, process all of the necessary legal documents and train all of the department's personnel. In January of 1999 the Allen Park Fire Department officially began the change in service. This service has been well received by the community. In 1997 Mr. David A. Servetter and Mr. Ryan Wolfe were hired to work in the Allen Park Fire Department. In 1998 Mr. Jeffery O'Riley, Mr. James Aksamit, Mr. Scott Bonneau, Mr. Patrick Beyer were hired on to the Allen Park Fire Department.

In 2003 Mr. Michael Schook was hired on to the Allen Park Fire Department. In 2004 Mr. Matthew Abrahamson was hired on to the Allen Park Fire Department. In 2005 Mrs. Tammy Jones transferred from the DPS to become our new Administrative Assistant, replacing Mrs. Cindy Carry who had retired. In 2010 Mrs. Jones retired, because of City wide downsizing she has not been replaced. In 2005 Mr. Edward Cann, Mr. John Dabbs, and Mr. Joe Placido were hired onto the Allen Park Fire Department. In 2007 Mr. James Kolusk, Mr. Daniel Sampson, Mr. Eric Taylor, Mr. Michael Stetz, Mr. John Flynn, Mr. Derrick Spencer, Mr. Robert Epperson, Mr. Grant Peace, and Mr. Jacob Steichen were hired onto the Allen Park Fire Department. In 2008 Mr. Richard Hamilton was hired onto the Allen Park Fire Department. In 2012 Mr. Ryan Croft, Mr. Anthony Macari, and Mr. Michael Estrada were hired onto the Allen Park Fire Department. In 2013 Mr. Brian Bonora was hired onto the Allen Park Fire Department but left after 6 months for a job opportunity elsewhere. In 2014 Mr. Jason Pelty and Mr. Joel Albright were hired onto the Allen Park Fire Department. The Department has had twelve people promoted to the position of Fire Chief. Chief Charles V. Julian served as the departments first Chief from 1949 until he died while on duty in 1965. Chief Harold E. Smith replaced Chief Julian as the departments second Chief Officer.
