Welcome to the ANFF (Association of Novi FireFighters) website. This site has been created and funded by the ANFF to provide information regarding who we are, what we do, and how to contact us.
The City of Novi utilizes a cost effective 'dual' emergency response system comprised of full-time career firefighters and Paid-On Call (POC) members. The ANFF is the organization representing the POC members and presides under the auspices of the MAFF (Michigan Association of FireFighters). Fundamentally, the POC system helps to ensure that hard earned tax dollars are spent wisely by providing the necessary emergency resources when and where required.
When the department career members go home for the day returning to their homes in the surrounding districts, POC duty crews take over as first response teams available for immediate emergency dispatch. All other POC personnel respond from their Novi homes as needed every evening from 6:00pm - 6:00am and weekends operating silently, in the background - except during times of emergency - to provide essential emergency services.
All ANFF members reside within the City of Novi. You may even know one of us personally. One of us might even live right next door to you! Because of our commitment to this City, we have a vested and personal interest in the community and the emergency services provided. The ANFF continuously endeavors to protect the level and quality of these services .
