Newbury Volunteer Fire Department
The Newbury Volunteer Fire Department is an all volunteer fire department protecting 25 square miles with approximately 6,000 residents. Newbury Township is mostly a rural area with commercial, industrial, and professional businesses.
Currently we are not staffed at the fire station. When there is a call, the members are notified by the 911 dispatch center. Our members respond up to the station, get what vehicle/vehicles and equipment needed for the type of call, and then respond to the scene.
The fire station is located on the south side of St. Route 87 just east of Auburn Road. With an 11,700 square foot building, we house 2 advanced life support rescue squads, a pumper/rescue, pumper/tanker, 75' aerial ladder, pickup truck utility vehicle/grass unit, 6x6 Polaris Ranger, and a rescue boat. The building also has offices, a kitchen meeting/training room, locker/gear room, and a dispatch/radio room.
We currently have 12 members who have responded to 280 calls so far this year, and 635 calls in 2019. We provide fire and EMS services to our community. Our members participate in the county wide dive/rescue/recovery team, and the multi-county tanker shuttle program.
