Fire & EMS

Howland Fire & EMS Department

Our department is located in Howland, Maine. We cover an area of over 3,300 residence. Founded over 60 years ago, our department has largely consisted of passionate volunteers. Over the past three years we've grown from a volunteer department to a fully staffed Fire/EMS Paramedic service to not only Howland but neighboring communities and statewide service. Just this past year we added a full-time Chief, Joshua McNally who is also a Paramedic and two additional full-time Paramedics. Our staff are dedicated individuals who, despite the risks of the profession, provide our community with important fire protection and safety services 24/7.
