Vol. Membership

FD Application

The Fire Division is made up of approximately 50 volunteer members.  These dedicated individuals respond to a multitude of incidents including structure fires, motor vehicle accidents (MVA’s), and hazardous materials incidents just to name a few.  They must be trained in all these areas to be able to respond to these various incidents.  All members must be certified to a minimum level of Firefighter I, however many members have decided to expand their educational and experience backgrounds by seeking higher levels of training.  Some of the higher training levels are Firefighter II, Fire Instructor I and II, Fire Officer I, II, III and IV, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Operational and Technician, among many others that the state and federal government have to offer. Please click here to view the State of Connecticut Certification Flow Chart.

The fire department runs itself in a paramilitary rank structure.  The Fire Chief is the operational head of the department.  Serving under him he has two (2) Deputy Chiefs, two (2) Captains, three (3) lieutenants, and up to five (5) Engineers.  There is also an administrative side which is run by the Chairman of the Board of Directors. 

Department drills are held on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Mondays of each month.  Department business meetings are held on the 2nd Monday night of each month.

The Fire Department runs several fund raisers during the year.  The two biggest ones are the annual golf tournament and Bingo at the Four Town Fair.  There are also several pancake breakfasts and car washes throughout the year.  The money from these fundraisers are used to cover expenses that are not covered by the town budget. Some of these expenses include furniture for the Fire Department, Class A Uniforms for parades, the members "first" jacket, etc.
