City of Sanford Fire Department


I would like to welcome you to the Sanford Fire Department web site.  The City of Sanford is fortunate to have one of the premier Fire/Rescue organizations in the State of Maine who yield emergency service to the visitors and citizens of our city 24/7/365.  We have an amazing staff of talented Firefighter/Paramedics and Officers who work hard to keep our citizens safe throughout the year and work with many other valuable people from the city government to bring quality service to you every day.  Our Fire Marshal’s Office works diligently to keep new and existing structures safe for all who work and live within them in cooperation with the city Code enforcement.  With an ever increasing call volume, and limited resources, we are challenged every day but our mission shall continue to provide the City of Sanford with quality service through highly trained and dedicated professionals, in a manner responsive to the needs of our citizens and visitors.

If you have an emergency please always call 911.  For regular business and all non-emergency information you can call (207) 324-9160.  Thank you for your interest in our department.
