Wells Fire Department is a combination fire department, meaning we have both full-time, career firefighters as well as paid, on-call firefighters.
We operate three shifts. Each shift has one captain and two career firefighters assigned. The shift members work a 48/96 schedule. This means that they work 48 hour shift followed by 96 hours off. This rotates continuously throughout the year.
The career members of the Wells Fire Department are represented by the International Association of Firefighters Local# 4652.
Wells Fire Department supports a Jr Firefighter program for students 16/17 years old.
Wells Fire Department has approximately 20 active call members who respond to emergencies, maintain their training or attend other necessary requirements set by the department during the time away from their jobs and families. Each member is assigned to 1 of 2 sub-stations. Each sub-station is assigned a call officer. The department is always looking for new members.
If anyone in the community is interested in helping, please call us or stop by for an application. We welcome all who have an interest in making a difference for the Town of Wells.
