Police and Fire

Tyrone Township pays for public safety with a special assessment.  The special assessment, which is included in the winter taxes, will provide police and fire service until March 31, 2024.  Parcels with a residential structure are assessed $150, commercial property $250, and vacant parcels $75.  Commercial properties with multiple units are assessed  $250, plus $20 for each individual unit (ex. mobile home or apartment).


Police Service

Police service is provided by Livingston County Sheriff Department.  If you have an emergency, call 911. Non-emergency calls may be made to 517-546-2440. For more information, visit their website. Tyrone Township contracts with the sheriff department to provide the township with 8 hours of dedicated police protection during the most likely crime hours.

If you are going away and would like to have the police keep an eye on your property, fill out this Security Check Form and email to sheriff@livgov.com.

Fire Service

Tyrone Township does not own its own fire department. The township contracts with three fire departments--City of Fenton, Fenton Township, and Hartland Deerfield Fire Authority--to provide complete coverage.  With three sources of fire protection services, almost every home has one or two fire stations within five miles.

ISO Rating. Contracting with three fire departments has increased the Insurance Service Organization (ISO) Public Protection Classification (PPC) ratings in the township.  Among other factors, ISO determines the PPC ratings on a fire department's ability to deliver water to a fire.  Residents could potentially see a big saving on their homeowners insurance (make sure to inform your insurance company!).  More information about the ISO ratings
may be found here.  A map showing the ISO ratings within the township may be viewed here.
