Department Overview

        The North Reading Fire Department operates a varied delivery of services to the community.  While fire suppression is still perceived to be the Department's primary function, it is only a segment of our daily operations.
        To meet the changing needs of the community, our services have diversified to handle such specialized areas as technical, high angle, confined space and water rescues, vehicle extrication, and structural collapse.  Hazardous materials responses include industrial spills, suspected acts of bio-terrorism (white powder calls), investigation of hazardous atmospheres (gas leaks, carbon monoxide alarms) are becoming more prevalent. Code enforcement and inspections, along with Public Education and Fire Prevention activities are a major focus of resources when not answering fire or medical emergencies, as are conducting equipment maintenance, or training for all of the above.

Mission Statement

        The North Reading Fire Department will strive for excellence inthe performance of our duty and service to the community and the citizens we serve.  We are committed in finding better ways of protecting the lives and property of ourresidents fromthe ravages of fire and other disasters and are committed toward working together for the betterment of community.

We will take an active role in maintaining a professional image of the Fire Service throught efficiency, diligence, and dedication to duty.
