Joining Peterborough Fire & Rescue

Me, a firefighter or an EMT? No, I'm not the type.

Indeed, many are not the type to be a volunteer firefighter or an EMS member. On the other hand, many who might be the type have never had the opportunity to experience the fulfillment this service creates in each volunteer.

For a person to qualify to join our team, experience and training are preferred, but not required. One merely has to be at least 18 years of age and, most importantly, possess the desire to learn.

Continual training is always available and is paid for by the department. We are call personnel: we respond to calls when we are available and are compensated for the calls we respond to. Most of our members have full-time jobs and come from all walks of life.

If you would like to learn more about our organization, give us a call at (603) 924-8090 or stop by the station. We would be proud to show you around and tell you more about becoming a member of PFR. In the meantime, feel free to download our application packet.

Rewards of the PFR
Pride in the PFR is reflected by the camaraderie shared among our members and their families. The bonds that develop from sharing hard work and occasional danger are reinforced by the many social functions we hold throughout the year. Family gatherings, musters, parades and an annual appreciation/awards banquet all help to ensure that being a volunteer is not ALL hard work.
