Two volunteer departments service St. Clair Township. Funding for the departments is through voted levies. The levies produce approximately $260,000 annually, which is split between the Calcutta Volunteer Fire Department and the Glenmoor Volunteer Fire Department. The township fiscal officer disburses the money to both departments on a quarterly basis per the terms of the fire contracts with each department.
