Director: Jake Fogarty
The Bridgewater EMS division has see some impressive improvements the last few years. New training programs and new staffing has had a dramatic increase in those interested in becoming an EMT. The EMS unit works under the Fire Chief, Donny Atwood, who oversees both. The Public Safety Department is moving away from a volunteer service to an “on-call” service. All members of the fire, EMS and police, are paid an hourly wage for time spent responding to calls.
If you are interested in learning some valuable life saving skills and helping to serve your community, please contact Chief Donald Atwood or Deputy Director M. Tapio Mayo or any of the selectmen. Call during business hours at 744-6047 to discuss anything mentioned or just to chat.
