From the Chief’s Desk

The members of the Smithfield Fire Department wish everyone a safe and enjoyable time with family & friends. We want to thank all of you for your support of this organization and the kind words we receive throughout the year for the services we provide the public.

We look forward to working with all of our community partners. It should be an exciting year with a new fire station to build and all the usual community events we participate in every year.


Today we take it for granted that when there’s a fire, the fire department will come. It’s hard to imagine a time when Smithfield didn’t have a fire department, and home fire protection consisted of a leather bucket kept by the door. But such a time did exist – for almost 140 years! What follows is the story of how Smithfield obtained its first fire engine.
