Middletown Fire Department
239 Wyatt Rd, Middletown, RI 02842
By land and by sea, the Middletown Fire Department is equipped to put out any fire. What started as a six-man departmentMore with a 300-gallon pumper in 1922 today stands at 239 Wyatt Road with a team of 32 full-time firefighters standing by at the ready with an impressive fleet of firefighting and rescue trucks and boats, including three pumpers, one ladder, two rescue vehicles, one special hazards vehicle, one tanker, one brush truck, one rescue boat, two command vehicles and one utility vehicle. In 1922, eight fires were fought. Today, the Fire Department's main lobby boasts a town map covered with hundreds of color-coded pins of every fire fought and major emergency response in the department's history. When they're not protecting Middletown lives and property, the Fire Chief and firefighters are often providing a number of public services to the community, such as fire prevention education visits to schools, fire extinguisher training and site-specific safety training to local businesses, smoke detector and carbon monoxide inspections for the home, some detector installation and battery changes for the disabled, blood pressure screening during normal fire station business hours, and conducting scheduled fire department tours.
