The Fire Department answers calls for many types of emergencies including fires, alarms, hazardous material spills, smoke investigation, rescues, inspections and other things.
The Fire Department is a call department, meaning that the personnel receive an hourly rate of pay for their time on a call.
We have 40 members on the roster with about 30 who are active. We answer calls from three stations: Tenants Harbor which has Engine 3, Tank 2, Utility 1 and the two ambulances; Port Clyde which has Engine 2 and the forestry truck; Seal Harbor Road, which is our mutual aid station, houses Engine 4 & Tank 3.

Use of Fireworks
In 2011 the Maine Legislature made changes to the state fireworks laws. The law governing consumer fireworks states: “the legislative body of a municipality may adopt an ordinance to prohibit or restrict the sale or use of consumer fireworks within the municipality .” The Town of St. George has not adopted such an ordinance and therefore the laws of sale and use of fireworks for our municipality are the same as those outlined in the state law.
• July 4th;
2. A person may use consumer fireworks only on that person's property or on the property of a person who has consented to the use of consumer fireworks on that property.
3. A person under 21 years of age may not purchase, use or possess consumer fireworks within the State or present to a person licensed to sell consumer fireworks any evidence of age that is false, fraudulent or not actually the person's own for the purpose of purchasing consumer fireworks.
Use, Storage, Possession and Transport of Explosive Material
The use, storage, possession and transport of explosive (blasting) material is strictly controlled by Maine State statutes and requires a state issued permit. Please refer to the following statues for details:
Contact the office of the State Fire Marshal for additional information.
General Safety Tips
Whatever job you are asked to do, we need to show that we have trained you for that job. Training can be acquired at our weekly sessions on Wednesday nights, at weekend fire schools in varying locales statewide, and at County Fire Academies. There are also schools out of state, such as the Fire Academy in Maryland or the Center for Domestic Preparedness in Alabama.
A complete listing of training activities and meetings are available on the St. George Volunteer Firefighters & Ambulance Association website.
