Established in 1912, the mission of the Harrisville Fire Department is to provide the highest standards of emergency services to all in need and continue our partnership with the community by remaining "Loyal To Our Duty"
The Harrisville Fire Department is a combination fire department made up primarily by volunteer members augmented by a small career staff. All of our firefighters receive the same training and are held to the same standards no matter what their compensation status is. We respond to an average of 300 fire calls and 600 emergency medical calls per year to our primary response area, the village of Harrisville in the town of Burrillville, Rhode Island, as well as surrounding fire departments. We consist of a Fire Chief, a Deputy Chief, two Captains, five Lieutenants, a Safety Officer and 30 firefighters. We operate out of one station, utilizing two BLS engine companies, one ladder company, two ALS transporting rescues, and multiple brush and support vehicles.
We pride ourselves on providing quality fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to Harrisville and surrounding areas. We conduct fire inspections and plan reviews. These are completed by the department fire marshals. Also, fire prevention activities are conducted in the community under the guidance of our fire prevention officer.
