Fire Department

The Fitchburg Fire Department will be hosting a Paid-On-Call (POC) Firefighter Information Session at Firehouse #1 located at 5791 Lacy Road. If you have ever considered becoming a firefighter, we hope you stop by.

A brief presentation will provide an overview of the department, the POC position and the requirements. Following the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions or speak one-on-one with someone to get more information.

Residents of the City of Fitchburg are not required to have any previous firefighting experience in order to be considered for a position. Individuals living outside the City of Fitchburg must be Firefighter I certified, at a minimum.

If you have any questions about this Information Session, or you are interested but are unable to attend, please contact Wes Coppersmith via email:

IT’S A FACT: If your smoke alarm was installed more than 10 years ago, it needs to be replaced.
