Operating Principles of the Penn Twp. Fire Dept. Operate through Teamwork and Mutual Respect Operate Ethically and with Integrity Honoring the Past, Preparing for the Future Core Values and Service Statements of the Penn Twp. Fire Dept.
In the early days Penn Township was largely farm country. Bridges, railroad underpasses and divided highways were not in demand. In fact the first bridge connecting the northern and southern parts of the township was not built until the late 1950’s, when Bittersweet Rd. was built to span the widest part of the St. Joseph River in the impoundment waters behind the Twin Branch Hydroelectric Dam.
The mission of the Fire Department is to protect the lives and property of the people of Penn Township from fires, natural disasters, and hazardous materials incidents; to save lives by providing emergency medical services; to prevent fires through prevention and education programs; and to provide a work environment that values health, wellness and cultural diversity and is free of harassment and discrimination.

In fact the first bridge connecting the northern and southern parts of the township was not built until the late 1950’s, when Bittersweet Rd. was built to span the widest part of the St. Joseph River in the impoundment waters behind the Twin Branch Hydroelectric Dam.
