Contact us in an emergency

  Remember: In an emergency dial 999 and ask for Fire


Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) has temporarily suspended some activities as a result of COVID-19. Doing this will help to protect the most vulnerable in our community and help us to protect our staff so that we can continue to respond to fire and other emergencies in the county.  If you need help or support during this time, please visit the local authority’s website for guidance on how you can access help.

Where possible for general enquiries contact us via email in the first instance.  Your enquiry will be passed to the relevant department for a response; however we are prioritising work so that we can continue to provide an emergency response.  There may may be a delay with general enquiries, but please be reassured that all correspondence will be responded to.

If you do not have access to emails please contact us via the telephone, and always call 999 in an emergency.

For non-emergencies please contact us using one of the following methods:
