If you are interested and would like more information please contact the fire department at 532-8377 or submit the form below. Someone from the fire department will contact you and arrange to set up an appointment to explain to you the duties and the responsibilities of being a member of the Jaffrey Fire Department.
The Jaffrey Fire Department is a “call” Fire Department. This means that its members respond to fires from their homes or jobs when needed. The Town pays each member an hourly wage when they respond to an emergency call or participate in training or other department work.
The Jaffrey Fire Department is made up of 25 active “call” firefighters. We respond to approximately 350 calls for assistance per year.
The department has two engines, a heavy rescue, a tanker, a hose truck, a brush truck, a boat and an ATV.
In other parts of the country, there are many towns and some cities protected by call or volunteer fire departments. In fact, 76% of all firefighters in the United States are call or volunteer. We feel that as long as the Jaffrey Fire Department can keep an active roster of dedicated well trained call firefighters, the call system will serve the needs of the community.
Because some of our older firefighters are retiring and others are moving out of town, we are always looking for new members who are interested in performing an exciting and rewarding job for the Town of Jaffrey.
First of all you must be a minimum of 18 years of age, have a high school diploma or GED, and be in good physical condition. You must possess a valid New Hampshire drivers license and be a Jaffrey resident or have permanent employment within the Town that will allow you to respond to Fire Department calls.
