Starting March 10, 2021, Trustee meetings will be reopened for in-person attendance. Trustee meetings will be held at Fire Station 241, 123 Inah Avenue. COVID-19 protocols will be followed and space is limited. Meetings can also be viewed or joined in real time on Webex via the Township's website (see link below).
The Prairie Township Administration Offices, including the Prairie Township Commercial Building and Zoning Department, are open to the public.
While our office is open for business, our preferred method of contact is by phone or email. If you would like to meet in person, we encourage you to contact the Township Department you wish to meet with and schedule an appointment. All appointments will follow the CDC guidelines, including social distancing and the use of facial coverings. If you are coming to a pre-arranged meeting, you may enter the building through the Administration Offices door at 23 Maple Drive.
If you would like to drop off materials for the Commercial Building and Zoning Department, you may drop them off in the white drop box located outside the door of 25 Maple Drive.

COVID - 19 Instructional Bulletin for Prairie Township
The following instructional bulletin was developed in conjunction with several Central Ohio Medical Directors (Emergency Physicians who direct local Fire and EMS agencies) based on information and directions provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Ohio Dept. of Health (ODH). This bulletin provides guidance on what to do if you feel you may have contracted COVID-19 (the illness associated with Coronavirus). Also included, are resources that can be used for further information gathering. If you call PTFD stations for information, you will be directed to these phone numbers and websites for answers to your questions. Be assured that your fire department is doing everything we can to keep ourselves and our community as safe and as healthy as possible. By closely following these guidelines you, too will be helping to keep us all safe and healthy.
Thank you for your support and cooperation!
Fire Chief Allen Scott
