     Welcome to the City of Plymouth website! We hope you take some time to look through our website in order to better understand the many services our city has, as well as the vast talents of our well trained and dedicated city employee's have to offer.

     In addition to our role of providing outstanding Fire and EMS services, our Fire Department also provides emergency response in the following specialty areas: hazardous materials, water rescue, residential, commercial and industrial fire protection, search and rescue, vehicle extrication, and wild land fire suppression.  The Plymouth Fire Department also houses the INDIANA DEPARTMENT of HOMELAND SECURITY District 2 Mass Casualty Incident Response Unit.
