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.

This department was chartered in 1949 with the help of many area citizens. At that time there were only a few department’s in existence, mostly in area cities and villages. Their main goal was to provide East Liverpool’s paid department with a tanker truck on calls outside of the city. The City of East Liverpool actually gave them their first fire hose. Today they have grown into a very respectable fire department with a new facility built in 2004. There are currently 20 volunteer firefighters on staff.
