The Doaktown Volunteer Fire Department provides fire prevention and fire-fighting services along Route 8 from the Carrolls Crossing Road to Upper Blackville and all points in between including the settlements of Bettsburg, Hazelton and Storeytown, and along the Grand Lake Road (Route 123) to the Northumberland County Line.
The Department also provides assistance to such agencies as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the local ambulance service on an as-required basis. In addition, it provides back-up services to Doaktown’s municipal neighbors, the Village of Blackville and the Rural Community of Upper Miramichi.

All members are provided with Firefighter I training through the Office of the New Brunswick Fire Marshal and the auspices of the New Brunswick Community College. Firefighters also receive yearly training in CPR/First Aid as well as in-house training which is conducted on a monthly basis. Annual workshops are also available.
Although the majority of its operating budget is provided by both the Village of Doaktown and the Province of New Brunswick, the Department is always in the process of fundraising for additional or replacement equipment, new vehicles and other fire-fighting necessities. Throughout the year, the volunteers hold various events such as car washes, breakfasts, raffles and ATV family runs to raise money and awareness about the work of the Department.
The Doaktown Volunteer Fire Department is an active participant in such annual community events as the Bruce Hadley Run (in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation), the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, PARTY (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth), and Doaktown’s annual Salmon & Fiddlehead Festival. The Department regularly competes in the Provincial Firefighters Games which they won in 2008.
