Summit Township has one volunteer fire company, Perry Hi-Way Hose Company, http://www.perryhiway.com founded in 1948 by a group of concerned residents. Among them was George Gauthier, who transformed a used vehicle into the first fire truck which served as a combination pumper and tanker. Over the years it continues to be a very dedicated group of concerned residents that keep Perry Hi-Way Hose Company running smoothly. Because of their commitment, a brand new facility was recently completed.
Station No. 1 was built on Bloomfield Parkway, located just off Old Perry Highway. In November 1995, this station, known as Station No. 42, moved from the original two-bay building to 501 Robison Road East. A new brush truck with a snow plow was purchased to take care of snow removal needs for both fire stations.
Station No. 43 has existed since 1962 on Route 19, just south of Robison Road. The 90' x 100' foot building includes a social hall and additional storage for fire fighting equipment and ambulances.
Money to operate Perry Hi-Way Hose Company is generated by various fund-raising activities organized by the firemen and auxiliary plus an annual fund drive to request donations from local property owners. The support of Summit Township's residents and businesses is crucial to Perry Hi-Way's success.
