Fire Department

The Pembroke Fire Department was organized in 1869 as an on-call volunteer fire department which continues to this day.  Our members are professionals dedicated to helping any of our citizens in their time of need – whether it be a fire, water problem or advice on children playing with matches.

To learn more about each of us, how to contact us and who serves you please see the About Us section.

For others interested in what fire equipment we have, how we are organized and our general operational setup please go to our Operations section.  Not only will you see pictures of our equipment but you will also see our organizational chart and quick links to our dispatch center where you can see what is currently going on in the area.

Want to join us?  We welcome anyone who is, or who is perhaps, interested in joining our department to contact us or visit us.  See our Training and Recruitment section for more information.  Although we do not have full-time staff we can almost always be found on Tuesday evenings starting at 6:30 pm at the fire station when we get together for training each week.  You can come and see what we are and we will provide you with information as needed.

Preventing fires and emergencies is one of our primary goals.  We have an excellent fire prevention bureau that organizes public education programs, provides guidance and information to parents and others when there might be a behavioral problem regarding fire safety, and any other help that one might need.  Please see the Prevention and Education section to get more information.

Burning permits can be obtained at the Safety Center, 247 Pembroke Street Monday thru Friday, 8:00 am to 3 pm, when the receptionist is on duty.  Information is posted at the Safety Center on how to reach someone if the receptionist is not on duty.  Burning Permits can also be obtained on-line by clicking on the Fire Permits Online link to the left.

Fire codes and building permits are administered by the Town Code Enforcement Officer and Building Inspector.  He can be reached at Town Hall, 603-485-4747 extension 214. You may CLICK HERE to link to their webpage.
