The mission of the Worcester Fire Department is to protect the lives and property of the visitors and citizens of Worcester from the adverse effects of fire, medical emergencies or any other hazardous condition both man-made and natural. Also, it is the mission of the Education and Risk Reduction Division of the Worcester Fire Department to create safety awareness, promote fire and life safety skills and provide fire and injury prevention education and training through the community.
The Worcester Fire Department provides fire protection and life safety services to an area encompassing 39 square miles and a population of close to 183,000. The diversity in scope of protection in this area ranges from densely populated multi-family dwellings to office high rise buildings and a mixture of manufacturing and industrial complexes. Also, a major state highway passes directly through the city (I-290), producing potential hazards of undertemined proportions, due to the nature of the materials traveling along the highway.
It is our vision to provide an environment where individuals acknowledge that fire and injuries are predictable, understandable and threfore preventable. Although many things have changed in the city over the years, one thing will always remain constant; that is, that the Worcester Fire Department and its Firefighters, both past and present, are dedicated to:
THE PROTECTION OF THE LIVES AND PROPERTY
OF THE CITIZENS OF WORCESTER.
