Responses
We are dispatched by Valley Shore Emergency Communications in Westbrook. If the caller reports a structure fire with
visible smoke and/or flames, the KVFC and mutual aid dispatches occur simultaneously based on the location of the
incident.


Mutual aid assignments consist of a tanker (usually 2000 gallons) and a pumper from each responding department.

All stucture responses include a Rapid Intervention team (RIT) from North Madison.

Members are notified of the alarm via Radio alert pagers or via Fire Station Sirens and respond directly to the station or
to the scene, depending on the location of the incident.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On January 1, 1999, The Killingworth Volunteer Fire Company together with Valley Shore Emergency Communications
implemented a water resource assignment program. Each water source (pond, stream, underground storage tank)
within Killingworth has been identified and the service area for that water source determined. This is the culmination of
a several year effort which involved measuring distances and assigning a water source to every residence and
business in Killingworth. Valley Shore has integrated the data collected from this project with the existing E-911 system.
When a caller dials 9-1-1 from Killingworth, the dispatcher's E-911 screen will instantly display the caller's name,
address, phone number, where the closest water source is for their residence and how to deliver this water to the fire
scene (tanker shuttle, large diameter supply hose). Having this critical data readily available eliminates the need to
choose a water source from memory and will be especially valuable to mutual aid units that are unfamiliar with the
locations of water sources in Killingworth.
