The Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company has been protecting and serving the residents and visitors of Sandy Hook since 1938.

  Thank you for your support of your local fire company.

Thank you to everyone who came out to FILL THE FIRE TRUCKS!
We appreciate every donation received, whether on Saturday at Big Y or Sunday at Stop & Shop. Your donations will help FAITH Food Pantry volunteers help those in need put together a Thanksgiving dinner           


Up next: 

Our Christmas Trees Sale!

More than 700 trees from Vermont will be delivered to the Sandy Hook main station on Friday, November 27. Company members will unload the trees — and also set up displays of cemetery boxes, kissing balls and wreaths trees — that morning. 

Our 2015 sale should then be up and running by mid-afternoon Friday, and will continue daily until Christmas Eve, as supplies last.

Hours for this fundraiser are weekdays (after November 27), 6-9 pm (and earlier by chance); and weekends, 9 am-9 pm.

Thank you in advance for your support.



Main Station, 18-20 Riverside Road

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.

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.
