Thank you for taking the time to view the Hull Fire Department web site. We are excited to share a new enhanced view of our department. We hope that this information will be helpful to you in your every day living and a valuable resource for your use in preparation for an emergency situation.
As the Fire Chief, I have the pleasure to work with a dedicated group of professional firefighters who are committed to providing the fire and life safety needs of our community. Our Department's priorities are centered on fiscally sustainable operations with focus on safety and service.
In recent years, the fire service has been challenged with emergency medical services, water rescue, hazardous materials, all aspects of technical rescue, along with a large increase in emergency calls and non-emergency activities. The Hull Fire Department has in all cases succeeded in meeting these challenges while remaining focused on its main goal of protecting life and property. The department responds to over 2,800 emergency calls and over 1200 calls for inspectional services annually. Training our personnel to meet these challenges will continue to be a high priority.
That being said, the Hull Fire Department is the community's Fire Department and we are committed to contributing to its betterment. The fire service is a public service and thus we strive to meet the community's service demands. In most cases, it is a matter of knowing your questions or concerns have been heard and addressed. Therefore, if you cannot find the information you are searching for, please do not hesitate to call us at 781-925-8111 and we will either immediately answer your questions or direct you to the right person. Please feel free to email me directly should you have a specific question or concern at Rhollingshead@Town.Hull.Ma.Us.
Thank You and Stay Safe,
Robert A. Hollingshead

(An abbreviated sonnet by Pat Greene)
Hail! to the Town of Hull firehouse,
it's the home of the very brave.
The men and women who work there
are the angels who're trained to save.
So, the next time you hear the alarm peal,
and see the engines go roaring along
remember the firefighters aboard them
are the guys who will NEVER do wrong!
