Forest Fire Danger Level

Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Daily Forest Fire Danger Report.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Sandy Hook Vol. 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.

Move Right For Blue Light

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.

Purchase Reflective Signs

 HELP US FIND YOU FASTER!! 

IF WE CAN'T SEE YOUR HOUSE NUMBER FROM THE SEAT OF THE VEHICLES RESPONDING TO AN EMERGENCY, IT COULD DELAY OUR RESPONSE AS WELL AS THE RESPONSE OF OTHER EMERGENCY SERVICE PROVIDERS. 

Reflective signs are available from Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue.

They can be purchased for $15, and will be designed to hang vertically or horizontally (your choice) on your mailbox post.

Stop by the firehouse any Monday night or call 203-270-4392 to place an order.

The Fireman's Prayer
A Fireman's Prayer
 
When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage,
Give me strength to save some life
Whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor and
Protect his property.
And if according to my fate
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife. 


HAPPY ANNIVERSARY CHIEF HALSTEAD!
