An upcoming recruitment open house aims to attract future volunteers to assist local first responders when called out to house fires and other disasters.
The Livingston County Disaster Assistance Response Team or DART is an all-volunteer, independent organization committed to the health and well-being of local first responders on scene. DART has been in operation since 2012 and volunteers assist local law enforcement agencies, fire departments, EMS and other first responders. The team provides "canteen" services such as coffee, cold drinks, and snacks as well as "rehab" services that help keep them warm and dry in the cold winter months and cool and hydrated in the hot summer months.
This Saturday, the Hamburg Township Fire Department will be hosting a recruitment open house for DART. Anyone with a desire to volunteer and give back can stop by the event to meet team members and learn what they do to assist first responders. The open house will run from 10am to noon at Station 12, located at 10100 Veterans Memorial Drive. More information about DART can be found through the link. An event flyer is attached. (JM)

Township Clerk Mike Dolan Swears in Fire Chief Nick Miller at the 09/18/2018 Township Board of Trustees Meeting.
09/20/2018: From WHMI 983.5 FM: One of Hamburg Township’s own has risen through the ranks and been promoted to Fire Chief.
Born and raised in Hamburg Fire Chief Nick Miller
Hamburg Township by a fire fighting family, it almost felt like destiny Tuesday night when the Board of Trustees appointed Nick Miller as the township’s next Fire Chief. Miller began his career when he was 14 years old as a junior firefighter with the local department. Progressing through the ranks, he was named Deputy Fire Chief in 2011, and took over as interim Fire Chief when when his former boss, Mark Hogrebe retired on July 1st. Miller, along with Hamburg Police Chief Rick Duffany, was instrumental in the establishment of the Hamburg Township Public Service Administration that was also formed Tuesday night.
Miller’s swearing-in ceremony took place in front of a standing-room only crowd full of family, friends, and around 3 dozen firefighters from Hamburg and surrounding departments. Miller said he is very proud of all the firefighters locally, and that he looks forward to “continuing the tradition of taking care of the great residents of Hamburg Township.” He said some of his earliest photos are of him as an infant wearing his dad’s Hamburg Township firefighter hat.
Supervisor Pat Hohl said he sees a passion for firefighting in Miller, and that they are all pleased that his dream of becoming Fire Chief has come to fruition.
