Department of Emergency Services

Public safety is the most important goal of our department. Fire prevention can save lives and prevent loss of one’s property. While we are fortunate to have five fire companies in Town trained in many aspects of public safety and emergency response, you too can prepare and prevent emergencies with some helpful tips. Below are some links which can aid you in making yourself and your family safe. If you have any questions about anything public safety related, please do not hesitate to contact us.
