Always looking for
new Members
The Cherryfield Fire Department is
made up of 20 to 25 members who
serve the town of Cherryfield, and our
surrounding towns. In todays day and
age there is no longer any difference
between the training a full time
firefighter receives and the training a
volunteer receives. This makes
fighting fire much more effective and
safer for a small volunteer department,
but makes it more difficult to maintain
a fully operational force.  
We are always looking for new
members, not only to fight fire but also
for ground support, truck drivers, and
just all around help. In order to keep
the Departments gear inspected and
ready for service it takes over 1000
man hours per year and many hands
make light work.

third Wednesdays of every month at
