Who We Are
The Peterborough Fire & Rescue Association (PFR) is a on call organization consisting of approximately 70 Firefighters and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) members, many of whom serve in both fields.
Peterborough Fire & Rescue is lead by Chief Ed Walker. He is assisted by twelve officers.
We have an active Auxiliary Membership as well as an Explorer Post 808, that helps train youths between the ages of 14 and 21 who are interested in firefighting and EMS. Our diverse makeup of personnel includes area natives and newcomers, men and women, young and old.
Where We Are
The PFR is stationed at 16 Summer Street in Downtown Peterborough, New Hampshire. Housed there is some of the most sophisticated equipment available for today's firefighting and EMS demands.
What We Do
The PFR proudly provides fire protection to over 6,500 people living in the 52 square mile area of Peterborough and Sharon. The department also provides emergency medical services to Peterborough, Sharon, Dublin, Francestown, Temple, and Hancock. The department also helps cover neighboring towns in emergency situations.
By way of radio page from the Southwestern New Hampshire District Fire Mutual Aid System, firefighter and EMS personnel are notified of a call for help and respond to the Peterborough Station. The PFR responds to over 2600 calls each year.
Members of the department undergo continual training to maintain and expand their skills. We also have a strong commitment to the community with regard to public education. Members also visit local schools to help familiarize children with fire prevention and EMS awareness.
