History of the Central Joint Fire - EMS District
In November of 2001 the voters of Batavia Township and Batavia Village were asked to vote on the issue of creating a Joint Fire District. Ohio Revised Code Section 505.375 allows for the creation of such Districts. The issue asked for voter support to form Central Joint Fire - EMS District and with overwelming majority the District was created. Central Joint Fire - EMS District became official on January 1st, 2002.
