Fire Department

The Paxton Fire Department (PFD) is responsible for the protection of lives and property from disasters both man-made and natural. They accomplish this through fire prevention, education, and suppression. Additional responsibilities include the Town's Emergency Medical Service.

The PFD is overseen by the Fire Chief and is staffed by a combination of Full-time, Part-time, and Call Firefighters/EMTs and Paramedics.
