This collaboration between Plymouth Fire-Rescue and Plymouth State University as well as Lakes Region Community College has spanned many decades. We appreciate these relationships and all the students who have and continue to provide service to our communities. Many of our former members have moved on to work in Fire Departments such as ours, Manchester, Bedford, and Derry, NH, S. Portland, ME, Boston, FDNY, and Charlotte, NC! We know that all their futures are full of promise, and we are honored to have played a small part in their beginnings!
