During this time of social distancing, Sandy Hook VFR has done two special visits to young residents within our fire district.
On Sunday, April 5, Firefighters Scott Allen, Pete Barresi, John Eisele, Matt Schapiro and Shannon Will took Engine 442 out for a ride to extend birthday wishes to two brothers. Born a few years apart, the boys both celebrate their birthday on April 5.
Then on Friday, April 10, FFs Allen, Barresi, Eisele and Will again took a ride. This time they had Engine 442 and the OIC truck, and joined a contingent of friends, family, and Newtown Underwater Search And Rescue members for another birthday driveby.
August 12, 2021: Burlington Volunteer Fire Department Firefighter-EMT Colin McFadden, 26, died after falling ill while at the scene of a three-alarm structure fire.
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.
