Many changes have been made in the fire service since the turn of the century. Gone are the days that the fire department responds to only fire calls. The Newton Fire Department is a full service fire department which provides fire, emergency medical services, hazardous materials and technical rescue response capabilities. In addition, the Fire Department is also responsible for City disaster response coordination. Whatever the emergency, the Newton Fire Department is prepared and ready to answer the call.
