Each night when you lay your head down, you can rest peacefully--knowing the Hamlin Fire Department is standing guard over our community. Our volunteer firefighters are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, always ready to spring into action at a moments notice to protect life and property. When the call comes in, we leave our jobs and our families to assist you in your emergency.
Our mission is to provide the residents of Hamlin Fire District with a highly trained and efficient fire suppression and prevention organization that protects the community from the ravage of fire and other hazardous situations. During 2010, we saw the number of emergency calls we responded to escalate to nearly 400, with roughly 6,000 person-hours devoted to those calls in our community and our mutual aid areas. These yearly statistics are ever growing, and only emphasize the importance of having our members always at the ready and properly trained on the latest tactical maneuvers and state-of-the-art equipment.
The Hamlin Volunteer Fire Department has been responsible for providing fire protection, rescue service and other emergency medical services for the Township since 1927. Our members are Hamlin residents, dedicated to bettering the community and providing a safe living environment for all. We rely on our brother and sister firefighters on a daily basis, and put our lives in each other’s hands, when a fellow firefighter is in need, others are there to lend assistance.
Now we need to ask you, the members of the community we protect, for your financial support. Over the past few years, we have all seen that First Responders are always there for America--no matter how tough the job. Now we are asking that you be there for us...when we need your help the most.
Donations from residents and area businesses are vital in order for us to maintain and upgrade our Firemen's Fields, L.R. Merritt Hall and as well as our membership needs. Because of ever-increasing training requirements, and other time constraints on our volunteers, we are asking you to mail back your donations.
We thank you in advance for your kind support and appreciate the chance to serve our community -- The Members of the Hamlin Fire Department.
