Washington Porter Patch

Washington Township
Airport Fire-Rescue

The Porter County Municipal Airport is located 58 miles southeast of Chicago along US-30 east of Valparaiso, IN. Since the PCMA is a smaller facility, the airport does not have a career fire department. Volunteer firefighters from Washington & Morgan Townships, along with the Valparaiso Fire Department provide Fire, Rescue & EMS protection to the 718 acres that make up Porter County Municipal Airport.
