The City of New Carlisle has a rich history dating back to its inception in 1810 and most notably where on June 10, 1933, the infamous John Dillinger committed his first bank robbery, taking $10,000 from the New Carlisle National Bank. The New Carlisle Fire Division is comprised of a combination of paid-per-call and part-time employees for a total of 60 firefighter and emergency medical service providers. The Division consists of one station located within the City which is staffed with 2 part-time personnel, with this program funded by an emergency medical service (EMS) operating levy. Also the Fire Division provides contractual emergency medical service support to Elizabeth Township in Miami County. Elizabeth Township owns the ambulance, fire engine and the fire station. They rely on the City of New Carlisle for staffing support only with two emergency service providers working there daily.
