The Nashua Fire Rescue's ultimate goal is to reduce the incidents of fire therefore reducing the damage and injuries that result. When fires do occur and the cause needs to be determined, the Fire Marshal's Office handles those investigations. All Fire Investigators are certified and receive extensive training in fire scene investigation. Fire scene investigations take a great deal of time and our Fire Investigators work in conjunction with the Nashua Police Department in building cases where criminal prosecution is sought.
