Fire & Rescue Calls
The Fire Department responds to approximately 8,200 fire and rescue calls each year. For fire suppression and rescues, the department maintains four engine companies, one tower and one rescue truck. The department provides for a wide variety of rescues including ice, fire, confined space, and auto extrication.
Emergency calls and routine transports are provided for by our trained emergency medical technician staff. All medical personnel are cross-trained as firefighter and are certified by the Massachusetts Office of Emergency Medical Services. Personnel respond to approximately 6,400 medical calls each year. Calls involve all types of emergency situations as well as routine non-emergency transports to or from area hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. We maintain five fully equipped and certified ambulances.
Municipal Fire Alarms
Alarm systems are connected into the recently opened Public Safety Communications Center, along with the city’s 911 emergency dispatch system. Alarms are received via a radio call box system. This system does not rely on municipal power or overhead wires to operate, assuring receipt of alarm regardless of weather conditions.
