DID YOU KNOW:
The Boxford Fire Department recieved a $42,000 grant through the Federal Government that will be used to run an in-house EMT training program. The class roster consists of 11 firefighters, 5 police officers, 1 dispatcher and 4 Groveland firefighters. The program consist of weekly classes Monday nights with additional homework/assignments online. I am very proud of all who have committed to undertake this program. Finally, I would like to acknowledge and thank Matthew Dyer for obtaining the grant.
To help us find you, please make sure that your house number is not obstructed by snow. If your mailbox has been knocked down try fixing a number to a nearby tree. All houses should have a number (3-5 inches tall) fixed to the house. The number should be visible from the street. If your house is set back and not visible from the street, it should be placed in a manner that we can see it as soon as possible while driving up your driveway. Numbers should also be an offsetting color so it does not blend in.
Boxford Fire is a combination department consisting of (5) paid staff and about (50) paid on-call firefighters. We operate out of 2 fire stations and serve a population of 8500 over 24 square miles. Our service area is a community of residential single-family homes located 30 minutes north of Boston. Interstate Route 95 cuts a five mile path through the town over which extremely heavy volumes of car and truck traffic travel daily on their way to points in northern New England and south towards Boston and New York. State roads Route 133 and 97 cut an east west path connecting our town to the New England.
