PUBLIC SAFETY

Police protection is provided to Hadley Township by the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Department and the Michigan State Police. Hadley Township has one fire station, which is located on the west side of Hadley Road at the south end of the Village. The building houses the department’s 1999 pumper tanker, 1994 pumper tanker, 1980 tanker, and 1986 4X4 grass rig. Since Hadley Township does not have a water system, the tankers are vital pieces of equipment. In 1994, the department also purchased a rescue unit, which is used to transport equipment such as the “Jaws of Life” and oxygen tanks. The Township recently received a grant to purchase a new pumper / rescue truck. Hadley Township has a volunteer fire department composed of 24 firemen, of whom the Chief, Assistant Chief, Captain, and two lieutenants are salaried. In total, the Township has 33 firefighters and first responders.
