We frequently offer tours to school groups and residents. Please call our business line at 508-359-2323.
We currently have 8 full time firefighter/EMT's and 15 on-call firefighters. 2 Full time personnel are on shift at the station 24/7; On-call personnel are summoned to the station for emergency calls when needed. The positive override vote in the 6/11/18 election will increase shift strength to 3 on duty firefighters, with at least 1 firefighter per shift being a paramedic. The additional personnel will be hired after 7/1/18.
Medfield Fire staffs 1 ambulance at the Basic Life Support (BLS/EMT) level. We are currently reliant on mutual aid from neighboring departments for Advanced Life Support / Paramedic level intercepts when needed after the private regional service discontinued operation. Town Meeting approved the hiring of 4 Firefighter/Paramedics for FY 2019, and the positive override vote on 6/11/18 will now allow the Medfield Fire Department to begin offering ALS service once staffed and equipped.
Outdoor burning of brush is generally allowed January 15 - April 30 depending on conditions. A permit from the Fire Department is required and residents must call the station at 508-359-2323 the day they plan to burn brush.
For power outages contact Eversource at 1-800-592-2000. For hazardous conditions such as power lines down or fire involving electrical equipment - call 911.
Since the demolition of the old public safety building, the fire department no longer uses the fire horn on top of town hall to summon on-call firefighters to the station. Department personnel have radios, pagers, and e-dispatch options.
