Fire Department

The Fire Department is responsible for the protection of lives and property from disasters both man made and natural. They accomplish this through fire prevention, education, and suppression. Additional responsibilities include the town’s basic life support ambulance and emergency management. The Fire Chief is also responsible for emergency management planning.

Including the Fire Chief, the department is supported by 30 permanent and five call firefighters. The Fire Department operates with seven officers and firefighters assigned to each of four work groups operating out of two stations: five on duty at the Central Fire Station in Weston Center and two at the South Avenue station.

The department responds to approximately 2,500 calls for service annually, of which 1,000 are ambulance related.
