The Ladies Auxiliary provides support to the fire company by providing refreshments when the company is out on an extended call. The auxiliary helps with company fundraisers and also conducts their own events, including flower sales for Easter and Mother's Day.
The group meets on the second Tuesday of every month at the firehouse. All women are welcome. Members do not need to live in the Sandy Hook district, nor have a husband, boyfriend or son in the fire company in order to join the Auxiliary.
The Auxiliary's current president (2017-18) is Laura Comerford. Additional officers are: Sharon Doherty, vice president; Beth Beatty, secretary; Christine O'Grady, treasurer; and Linnea Stoyak, membership.

The mission of the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Co., Inc. is to strive for excellence in the performance of prevention of loss of life, personal injury and damage from fire, medical and other emergencies of any or all persons when called upon. We shall do this by maintaining a high standard of training and public education and act and perform in a safe, courteous and professional manner.
Volunteer firefighters display a flashing blue light to warn other motorists when they are responding to emergencies in their personal vehicles.
While Connecticut Motor Vehicle laws do not require motorists to pull over to the right, please be courteous and let them pass.
Remember: The faster we can get to the scene of a fire, an accident or a medical call, the sooner we can save lives. After all, you wouldn't want anyone to delay our response time if you needed to call 911, would you?
When you see the blue light, move to the right.
