Help Protect Your Community!

The Candia Fire-Rescue Department needs your help!  As people get busier and busier, it becomes more difficult to consistently provide quality emergency services at all times.  Although Candia Fire-Rescue is able to adequately serve our community, we always welcome new members, especially those who may be able to serve our community during the daytime on weekdays.  We encourage persons with fire and/or EMS training and experience to join our team, but no formal training or experience is required!  We provide all the necessary protective equipment and training to effectively protect the citizens of Candia, NH, and the surrounding towns.  Training programs offered to members of the department, with total reimbursement or pre-payment, include:

  • First Responder
  • Emergency Medical Technician - Basic
  • Emergency Medical Technician - Intermediate
  • Firefighter 1
  • Firefighter 2
  • Driver Operations/Commercial Drivers License
  • Hazardous Materials Awareness/Operations
  • And others!

Training offered with tuition reimbursement for EMT to Paramedic.

  • Be in good physical condition.
  • Have no criminal record, or be prepared to document any charges placed against you.
  • Be willing to work as part of a team to serve the citizens of Candia, NH.
