A Brief Overview

The Arrowsic Fire Department was formed in 1960 and is composed of approximately 12 volunteers. The department utilizes mutual aid agreements with all surrounding towns for assistance during large emergencies. The town has a contract with the City of Bath to provide ambulance coverage in the town. The members of the department are very proud of the growth that the department has seen in the last several years and we are always looking for new volunteers.

Equipment

The fire department currently has two stations, both in the area of the Town Hall. The main station is located on Stafford Lane and houses the department’s three apparatus, and the second station is on the Old Stage Road and is used for equipment storage at this time.

Apparatus

Tank 3- 2011 E-One

The Tanker’s primary purpose is to transport water to scenes as well as carry equipment primarily required to fight structure fires.

Engine 2- 1989 F350

The Engine’s primary purpose is to pump water to the fire, and can also be used to fill other trucks with water. Due to its size and capabilities, it is frequently used on the small roads in Arrowsic. The Engine also carries equipment for chimney fires and motor vehicle crashes.

Brush 1- 2001 F350

The Brush truck’s primary purpose is for brush and grass fires.

The Arrowsic Fire Department is equipped to respond to any and all types of emergencies that may occur within the town. The town requests assistance from its mutual aid partners for response to open water rescue calls.
