The Village of Hampton operates with a trained staff of 20 volunteer firefighters and one in the reserves. Seventeen of the Firefighters are also trained "First Responders". The First Responders report to the scene of auto or home accidents as well fires. Being first on the scene, they are trained to assist police and emergency personnel with life sustaining, basic aid until transportation to a medical facility has arrived.
The training for firefighters and first responders continues throughout the year each Monday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Firehouse on 6th Street and 3rd Avenue. Volunteers are continually training on any new fire or first responder techniques and most recently, Home Security Directives that need to be implemented.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, contact the Fire Department at 755-6182.
