The Norway Fire Department is a paid call department and its Fire Fighters are paid an hourly rate of pay for Services rendered for Fire Fighting and Training.
Calls are dispatched by the Oxford County Regional Communications Center (E-911) in South Paris. All Fire Fighters carry paging alerters for this purpose.
The Fire Department is responsible for the fire service protection for the Town of Norway. It also serves as the central collection point for Fire Prevention Education for the citizens of Noway, surrounding towns when requested and schools within Maine School District 17 when requested. The fire department also has a mutual aid agreement for additional fire protection with the City of Auburn, the Towns of Paris, Oxford, Waterford, Harrison, Otisfield, Mechanic Falls, Greenwood, Hebron and Buckfield, West Paris and a Tri Town Haz-Mat Team that works in conjunction with Paris and Oxford.
The Department is always looking for new Fire Fighter candidates and Training is scheduled for the first Monday night of each month at 6:00 p.m. as well as additional training programs on occasional nights and or weekends. Interested candidates are urged to contact the Town Office for an employment application.
The Norway Police will be participating in the National "Click it or Ticket" campaign. This year's campaign will run from May 20 to June 2, 2013.
Here are some facts about seat belt use:
In 2011 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 11,949 lives nationwide.
In fatal crashes during 2011, 77 percent of passenger vehicle occupants who were thrown from their vehicles were killed. However, only 1 percent of crash victims who were buckled up were totally ejected from their vehicles, compared to 31 percent of those who were unbelted.
Motorists are 75 percent less likely to be killed in a rollover crash if they are buckled up.
Pick up truck drivers and passengers are also at risk. In 2011, 65 percent of pick up truck occupants who were killed in traffic crashes were not buckled up at the time of the crashes, compared to 46 percent of passenger car occupants who were killed from not buckling up.
The Norway Police Department is joining with other state and local law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates across the country to help save lives by strongly enforcing seat belt laws around the clock, especially at night.
