Fire Department

Department Overview

Fire Suppression

Our station, located in the heart of New Castle, houses a variety of firefighting tools including two engines and a rescue vehicle. Our firefighters train regularly on the core essentials of firefighting including suppression, search and rescue as well as proficient vehicle operation. 

We strive to maintain a high level of readiness in these core areas so when the time comes we stand ready. 

Emergency Medical Services

The department responds to requests for medical aid with a rescue squad program. Many members are trained both as firefighters and EMTs delivering a unique skill set to the citizens in need. The town currently contracts traditional ambulance service from the City of Portsmouth for a small annual fee so that patients requiring advanced care at the hospital can be brought without delay.
