|3rd ANNUAL GOLD TOURNAMENT -- MAY 6, 2017 |
Hosted by Winchendon Firefighters Relief Association
|AMERICAN LEGION POST 193 BONFIRE -- JAN 14, 2017|
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - January 6, 2017
Over the past few months the Winchendon Fire Department has been receiving more and more calls for fire and ambulances to the fire department's non-emergency phone numbers (297-2323 & 297-2324).
ONLY 911 should be called for requests for fire or ambulance requests for assistance or transport. Why?
Each and every FIRE or EMS request needs to be properly documented and dispatched by our 911 dispatchers who are ALWAYS there to answer your calls. The WFD has become a very busy fire department. There will be times when no one will answer these non-emergency lines because we are out on calls. Our non-emergency numbers are for regular station business, such as brush burning season which begins January 15th.
PLEASE use 911 for ALL requests for fire department assistance or for an ambulance - even if you don't think it's a technically an "emergency."
It is the goal of the Winchendon fire department to provide each and every Winchendon resident the quickest and most efficient response possible.
Thank you for your cooperation.
