The Albion Volunteer Fire Department is closed as of January 1st, 2023. Cranesville Volunteer Fire Department is now providing fire and rescue services to Albion, Conneaut Township, Elk Creek Township, as well as their own municipality. For the first 90 days of 2023, Cranesville is also providing EMS service to the municipalities.

Jason Hardaya, President of the Albion Borough Council said, "we reached out to Albion and said they do a great job with EMS but you just don't have the personnel to handle fire services." According to Hardaya, Albion responded by saying "we either do both or neither one at all."

Brandon Kennedy, President of the Cranesville Fire Department, said even with the extra workload, they will manage. "We can handle it and we're fully staffed."

Erie News Now reached out to the Albion Fire Department for comment, we were told to contact their lawyer, and are waiting to hear back.
