Department has a long history protecting the Village of Moosup and surrounding
area. With one of the first Hurst Rescue Systems
in the town, a major advance in
underwater Search and Rescue, and supporting neighboring departments as a
Firefighter Assistance and Search Team (FAST), MFD will continue to provide support
into the future. There are several dedicated features of the MFD Team.
Firefighters are the
largest members of the MFD Team. Each member has received high quality training
from certified instructors, as well as hands on experienced based
training from the other members of MFD. Every call and every training
experienced is passed up and down the team. Firefighters respond to nearly
every call, including structure fires, car fires, power-lines down, grass fires,
motor vehicle accidents, and service calls, such as lock-outs, flooded
basements, and many other things.
Emergency Medical Technicians and
Medical Response Technicians are normally firefighters with
advanced training in Basic Life Support. MFD responds as a R-1 unit, or a
service that does not transport the patient to the hospital. We are supported by
Moosup-Plainfield Ambulance for transport.
Dive Team members
are part of a joint town team. Using Rescue-194 and Marine-194, the dive team
has been trained to specifically conduct pond and river rescues and
recoveries in our local area. Having previously responded to Griswold,
Chaplin, and Rhode Island, the Dive Team is a highly dedicated team of members.
