Fire - Rescue


Mission of Windham Fire - Rescue
The mission of the Windham Fire Rescue Department is:  
 
    "To assist the citizens and visitors of our community with emergencies that they are     unable to handle themselves."

The department provides a range of services that include:
 
  • Emergency Medical Response
  • Fire Suppression
  • Fire Prevention/Inspection Activities
  • Emergency Management
  • Hazardous Materials Response
The department also provides training on the following:

  • Workplace Safety
  • Fire Extinguishers
  • Evacuation
  • Fire Prevention
  • Fire Aid
  • CPR
