Fire Department

WFD patch

This department is 100% volunteer.

The men and women of the Wilton Fire Department have been protecting the citizens of Wilton and the surrounding communities since 1875. We are a 100% volunteer organization; our members respond to emergencies 24/7 and work regular full-time jobs. The Command Staff of the Department is comprised of a Chief, Assistant Chief and Deputy Chief. Our Department has three Companies known as Excelsior Hose Company 1, Souhegan Hose Company 2 and Eagle Hose Company 3, which are staffed by a Captain, Lieutenant and 8 firefighters per Company.

Our membership regularly trains twice each month at a minimum, once as a department and individually as each company. We also have special training sessions outside of this schedule in which we train with other departments as well as host state training as necessary. We may hire an outside organization for specialized training sessions for things such as vehicle extrication, for example. We encourage all members to be a minimum of Level 1 State of NH certified, and have accomplished that goal for most of the Department.

We are always looking for motivated individuals who are interested in giving back to their community by volunteering to become a firefighter. Please consider filling out an on-line application and coming in to talk with us; we are a diverse group and are willing to train folks to continue our success.

Thanks for taking a look at our website!
