Township Services

Fire & Rescue

Fire protection and emergency medical services are provided through an arrangement with the Clay Fire Territory. Fire stations are located:

Harris Township Park (HTP)

Located on Brummitt Road about a mile west of the county line, the park provides approximately 30 acres of open spaces and a small wooded area, a large playground, playing fields, and bird habitats. The park is also home to the Michiana Echo Soccer Club and is used by the PENN Lacrosse Program. [View on Map]

Elm Road Pedestrian Park or EPP for short

Located between the Harris branch library and the fire station on Elm Road, along the Granger Path. An empty field has been transformed into a new park.  In 2015, the park provided a soccer field and picnic tables.  In November of 2016, pickleball and basketball courts were added, along with a ball diamond and walkway.  In 2017, Granger Sunrise Rotary will raise up a playground.
