Mission Statement


The mission of the Cumberland Fire Department is to provide our community with the highest quality of protection against man-made and natural disasters.

This shall first be accomplished with a strong relationship between the department, the community, and local government. An effective fire prevention program will enable us to educate the citizens on how to prevent and then deal with emergency situations. This interactive program, combined with financial support from local government and community-based fundraisers will allow us to deal with these occurrences.

The officers and firefighters of the Cumberland Fire Department shall stay current with the new changes in education, information, procedures, and technologies that will enable us to handle emergency situations most effectively. Our extensive training program assures that firefighters are prepared for situations that may arise.

The department shall also retain a good working relationship with the fire department of neighboring communities. This allows reciprocating assistance in the form of equipment resources and mutual aid coverage in times of need.

It is our promise that we will serve our community with honor, and the highest level of professionalism possible at all times. It is the department’s job to provide the best fire education, fire protection and emergency services, for the town of Cumberland.
