The Easton Fire Department consists of 25-30 paid/call firefighters providing fire suppression, HAZMAT, Inspection, and Fire-Life Safety Education to the Town of Easton, as well as mutual aid to all surrounding communities.

The Easton Fire Department was incorporated in 1955 and has served as an active organization in the Town of Easton, Maine. The Easton Fire Department is under the direction of Chief Gregory White who was appointed to the position in 2017 and has been a volunteer firefighter for the past 40 years. Operating out of the Easton Station we have the ability to supply 9000 gallons of water to the scene of an emergency at one time.

Although the Town of Easton does not have a hydrant system, techniques have been developed to “shuttle” water to the scene of a fire quickly and effectively. The Easton Fire Department also operates their own set of hydraulic tools or “Jaws of Life” which are supplied by the Amkus Corporation, and are tested routinely by both the Fire Department and by the corporation themselves.

Although we are a paid/call or “volunteer” organization we do generate a very good response of firefighters in the community through the help of McCain Foods U.S.A., Huber Engineered Woods and the Easton School Department along with other employers or educators in the community who understand the need for the release of firefighters from their everyday lives during an emergency.
