A message from your Fire and Rescue Chief

It is my privilege and honor to introduce you to the Winchester Fire and Rescue Department.  We are an effective combination system comprised of four volunteer owned stations. We have sixty six career Firefighter/EMT’s and officers, three administrative staff, twenty-one active operational volunteers, and sixty active administrative volunteer members who proudly serve our community by providing 24-hour fire protection and advanced medical life support service. Collectively, the volunteers own the stations, all the ambulances, fire engines and ladder trucks utilized for emergency response within the City.  Our goal is to provide a community based, all-hazards emergency service delivery system.  We meet this goal through mutual respect, open communication and teamwork operating as one efficient and effective department.
