ABOUT PETERBOROUGH FIRE & RESCUE
Peterborough Fire & Rescue proudly serves the residents of Peterborough & Sharon with fire protection services and emergency medical services. In addition, PFR serves the towns of Dublin, Hancock, Francestown, and Temple with EMS service.
PFR is made up of a diverse group of members ranging from on-call to Full Time and everything in between. Our members range from mechanics, businessmen, psychologists, police officers, and full time firefighters and paramedics. Each adn every one of our dedicated members answers the call to help their community.
We operate a fleet of 5 ambulances, 2 Rescue Pumpers, 1 Ladder Truck, a Tanker, and additional support units such as a boat, fire alarm utility vehicle, and command vehicles. This fleet runs over 30,000 miles per year on various calls ranging from interfacility medical transports to building fires. PFR prides itself on equipping each piece of apparatus with top of the line tools and equipment which makes a difference when lives are at stake. Through the generous donations from our community, the Peterborough Fire & Rescue Association has donated equipment worth thousands of dollars to the department, ranging from cutting edge medical diagnostic devices to battery powered fans for ejecting smoke from a building.
Our members continually train, and conduct thousands of hours of training per year ranging in topics from CPR to ice rescue and emergency rescues to driver training. We pride ourselves on being one of the best trained and equipped departments in the region.
