The Southampton Fire Department is committed to serving our community with the highest level of life and property protection. We will achieve this by providing excellent and compassionate service in an atmosphere that encourages innovation, professional development, diversity and most of all by embracing our small community values.
The Southampton Fire Department consists of almost 50 part-time members and 1 full-time chief. We provide Advanced Life Support (ALS-Paramedic) ambulances and a complete fire rescue squad to the town 24/7, 365 days per year.
We have at least two EMT’s at the station at all times ready to respond into our community. The department trains every week to keep focused and prepared. Fire burns just as hot here in Southampton as in any other community. When emergencies happen, the community counts on us. Each member takes a pledge to protect our town and its citizens to the best of their ability. We achieve this through commitment, compassion, dedication and professionalism.
The State allows open burning starting January 15th through May 1st each year. Open burning is regulated by the DEP and Southampton fire department. State DEP web link provided below.
We now allow burning seven (7) days a week given favorable weather conditions. You may purchase a permit 7 days a week, daytime hours, at the station given staff availability. (We are not available during fire calls, ambulance calls, inspections or chores that require us to leave the building).
On Saturday we hire a firefighters dedicated to issuing burning permits from 8AM-11AM
We offer a $25.00 season burning permit and a $10 dollar two-consecutive day permit. Each must be authorized the day you burn by a Southampton firefighter. It is not acceptable to leave a message on answering machine.
The State only allows burning on certain days when the atmospheric conditions are suitable to reduce pollution. This determination is done by the State daily and Southampton FD will pass along that information each day coupled with local concerns as needed.
Checks should be made out to the Town of Southampton and permits issued on Saturday are good only for the weekend they are issued.
Open burning is regulated by the State of Massachusetts, click on the link below to learn more.

Firefighters put themselves in the line of danger frequently, but many of their job hazards are truly invisible. In fact, they regularly come into contact with cancer-causing chemicals and other toxins that can lead to adverse health effects, making proper gear to offer the utmost protection essential. The Firefighter Turnout Gear Grant program will provide firefighters in 144 departments with new hoods and gloves for structural firefighting activities, and I'm excited to announce the Towns of Hatfield and Southampton are two of the recipients this cycle. Congratulations Hatfield, MA Fire Department and Southampton Fire Department! ... See MoreSee Less
