Randolph Fire Department
Office of Fire Prevention


The Office of Fire Prevention and Code Enforcement is comprised of two members; Captain Paul C. Frew and Lieutenant Joseph R. Messia.  Captain Frew is currently in his twentieth year of service and Lieutenant Messia is currently in his fourteenth year of service.

We adhere to Massachusetts State Law ch 148,  Massachusetts State Fire Code 527 CMR 1, and the standards set by NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) to ensure the safety of all those that may be in Randolph at any given time.


We run the RHS Pathways Program offered at Randolph High School.  This is an elective class for students who are interested in a career path in public safety and/or the healthcare industry.  Classes are taught by Detective Kristen Emberley of Randolph Police, and Lieutenants Mike Austrino and Joe Messia of Randolph Fire.

Between Pathways and Captain Frew overseeing training we stay busy throughout the community.  We are frequently asked to make appearances for fire safety demonstrations, extinguisher training, and fire drills.  We have worked with our SAFE (Student Awareness of Fire Education) educators to educate students and our Senior SAFE officer to assist senior citizens residing in town.  We participated in many community events including the Night Before the Fourth, Back to School Jamboree, Town Health Fair, Harvest Hoopla, Winterfest, etc.

Annually we host Randolph Fire Department’s open house, sponsored by Papa Gino’s.  Pizza and drinks are provided and attendees are able to tour the fire station and fire apparatus, examine and use equipment, view demonstrations, ask questions, and receive fire safety handouts and paraphernalia.

We continue to do our very best to work with the public including business and building owners, business managers, property managers, maintenance personnel, and homeowners.  We follow the state’s fire code to ensure safety for all residents, employees, visitors, as well as members of public safety.  Life safety is the number one reason why we take our job so seriously. 

We thank you for your cooperation and look forward to a safe year.

Respectfully,

Fire Captain - Paul C. Frew
Fire Lieutenant - Joseph R. Messia
