The Swartz Creek Area Fire Association was created on March 25, 1925, serving the Village of Swartz Creek and surrounding Townships of Gaines, Clayton and parts of Flint and Mundy. Memberships were paid by residents with an initial fee of $25.00, plus $2.00/year thereafter. Businesses invested $50.00. The first year yielded 220 memberships. The Association purchased a 1925 REO Speedwagon with an open cab.
The Association was declared illegal by the Michigan State Accident Fund & Workers Compensation Insurance in 1952. On March 31, 1952, the assets of the department were turned over to Gaines Township, Clayton Township & the Village of Swartz Creek.
