The Marlborough Fire Department responds to all accidents where there is suspected injury to occupants of the vehicle. When a call is received at the Public Safety Communications Center, quite often the caller does not know if any injuries have occurred as a result of the accident. Even minor accidents cause "whiplash" or other injuries. Sometimes, the reason for the accident is a medical condition that caused the operator to lose control of their vehicle. To that end, all accidents are considered serious and require a response of medical personnel. The Fire Department also has a stake in the protection of the environment. The department supervises the clean-up of fuels, oils and coolants that may affect our natural resources.
