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.

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.
