A little bit about us.....
The Dorchester Volunteer Fire Department consists of local community members. Currently, we have 21 firefighters but are always in need of new members. The Department responds to a variety of emergency situations as well as medical emergencies and mutual aid response. We are committed to helping our community, and are on call 24/7/365!
Our training takes place every Tuesday from 7pm to 9pm. We encourage anyone who may be interested to stop by any Tuesday evening and see what is involved. You can also pick up an application at the Village office. It is a big time commitment but the rewards of helping out your community are wonderful.....and we are a fun bunch to hang out with too!
If you would like more information about becoming a firefighter or our junior firefighter program, visit our contact us page and we will fill you in.
A NOTICE TO THE COMMUNITY WE SERVE
We feel honored and privileged to be able to serve you.
* It has been an ongoing concern that the NB911 call-taking service does not always include us as a first call-out on emergencies that you expect us to attend. This is a broken system protocol that can leave rural NB fire departments un-notified. We have lodged complaints/concerns to Public Safety NB in the past.
* If you are reporting a non-fire emergency (such as an auto accident with injuries, gas leak, life threatening medical incident etc.) to 911 and if you are assuming that we will be responding, ask the 911 call-taker to:
“Please Send Dorchester Fire-Rescue as well as any other required emergency services”
With concern for your safety
