The Department consists of 100 firefighters of which 21 are on duty at all times, operating 5 Engine Companies, 1 Truck Company, led by an Assistant Chief on each shift. Each company is led either by a Captain or a Lieutenant. We operate the Fire Marshal’s office and the department Training Division. In addition to our suppression functions we provide hazardous materials, technical rescue, and a EMS First Responder program that is second to none. Many of the buildings in town are of the multiple occupancy type, and other hazards in the city include, a large retail shopping mall, many light commercial and some old mill industrial buildings, an Amtrak rail line, Route 15, Interstates 91 and 691.
