In this era of COVID-19

we continue to take precautions

to keep our members and the community safe.

We are responding to calls 24/7/365,

with updated protocols in place.


Thank you, and be safe. 

—The Officers & Members 

of Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue


Save the date! #FairfieldCountyGives returns one week from today, on February 25. We will be participating for our second time, and hope to receive support from family, friends, residents, and other supporters. 

The success of your donations during that 24-hour period will not only be the money raised, but also the future use of those funds for training, apparatus, equipment, and more. Visit https://fcgives.org to learn more.



2020 Numbers Reported

Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue finished 2020 with 654 calls recorded.

2020's numbers represent an increase of 16.57% over the number of calls we responded to in 2019, when we responded to 561 calls. The busiest month was August, when Tropical Storm Isaias arrived on August 4. Within the first 24 hours of the storm, Sandy Hook firefighters responded to approximately 80 calls.  

(For details, visit our Call Volume page.) 

The company also had 21 training sessions, 54 work sessions, and 17 company/business meetings last year. Out of caution for our members, we put company/business meetings on hiatus last spring during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We additionally canceled one meeting at the end of the year when COVID cases in the region began spiking again.  

Note training was not canceled, however. We continued training all year, putting safety procedures in place so that members could continue training while also staying safe.

Please remember this when we hold fundraisers: Your donations help us serve you. 

It is an honor to serve the district of Sandy Hook, Connecticut,

and to offer mutual aid to our regional brothers and sisters.
