Resources for the Fire Service

We support local fire departments through training, fire prevention, fire investigation, and emergency response.

DFS supports local fire departments with the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy (MFA), Hazardous Materials Emergency Response (HazMat), the Special Operations Unit, the State Police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit (F&EIU), and the Fire Safety Division (FSD). The FSD includes fire and electrical code enforcement support, fire data and statistics and resources for fire and life safety education.
