Thompson Volunteer Fire Department was formed in 1980 with 19 volunteers and a 1963 Tanker. Past Fire Chiefs include Larry Zentner, Richard Forstner, James Foster, John Stapleton, Corey Frankovich, Marc Cheuvront, and Jon Burk. We currently have 13 volunteers. We have a 3000 gallon capacity tanker and a 1250 gallon capacity pumper along with 2 brush trucks as the main vehicles. All new turnout gear (jackets, pants, helmets, boots, gloves, etc) were purchase in 2004 using FEMA funds from the Federal Government. We have also received several smaller grants from the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians and the Department of Natural Resources. If you would like more information on becoming a volunteer firefighter, please contact the Fire Chief or our Township Supervisor.
