Beyond Boundaries: Fire Services for Every Corner
Pelham Fire Services goes the extra mile by providing accreditation letters for areas outside the urban boundary lacking hydrant coverage. These letters assure insurance providers that minimum accepted fire flows to dwellings can be met, demonstrating the department’s commitment to safeguarding every corner of the community.
