Calling all friends, co-workers and family of retired firefighter Otto Vopelius. The COVID spike this January prohibited us from celebrating Otto’s life in person. Months later, we now have the opportunity to celebrate his life. The event for retired firefighter Otto Vopelius, is limited to family and friends. We appreciate the community’s understanding.
Once a year we reach out to all of our residents during our annual fund drive to ask that you “answer the call” and donate to the CTVFD. When you receive our mailing later this month, please show your support by either donating by mail using the receipt provided or online.
The Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department has been proudly serving the community since 1925. The Department is comprised entirely of volunteer members including active firefighters, junior firefighters and associate members. Our mission is to protect and serve the approximately 10,000 residents that reside in Chatham Township and assist surrounding communities. Our Volunteer Firefighters are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and answer 400 calls for service annually. The department operates its headquarters on River Road and a second station on Southern Boulevard.
