Welcome to the Fire & Rescue Department

Chief's Statement

On behalf of the members of the Topsham Fire & Rescue Department, I would like to thank you for visiting our website. Our goal is to provide the citizens of Topsham with the best Fire & Rescue protection services possible. We are regularly engaged in fire prevention and education programs as a way to accomplish this goal, not to mention the countless hours of professional training our members complete.

We would not be able to achieve this task if it were not for the Brave and Dedicated members of this department who continually sacrifice in service to the community, as well as for the tremendous support of the community itself.

Please take a moment and view our website. 

If I can be of any assistance to you, please feel free to contact me or visit the fire station.


Christopher McLaughlin, Fire Chief
