OUR MISSION

To minimize injuries, and property loss from fire, hazardous conditions, rescue situations, and other disasters, by providing excellent state of the art, life and
property conservation, emergency and educational services while recognizing our people as our most important resource and the key to our success!

When clearing snow on your property please remember to remove the snow from around the Fire Hydrants.

A hydrant in your neighbor's yard is there to protect your family and your home too.  

Please work with your neighbors to keep the hydrants clear.

Buried Hydrants delay access to the water supply that may be needed to fight a fire in your neighborhood.

Tragedy struck the Simsbury Horse Community with the loss of 24 Horses at the Folly Farm Stables in Simsbury on Thursday morning, December 28th.  An early morning fire in the stable area of the large arena/stable building resulted in the smoke inhalation deaths of all of the horses in the building at the time of the fire.  The Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company responded to the call of fire as soon as it was discovered by an employee who was checking on the barn and horses.  Fire units arrived and within minutes had the fire knocked down and under control but it was too late to save the animals from the smoke which took their lives.  Braving the cold weather with single digit temperatures and a windchill of 15 below zero the brave men and woman of the volunteer fire company checked for fire extension, hot spots and ensured the fire was completely out and the smoke ventilated.  They then assisted the Fire Marshall and his staff in the investigation process to determine a cause.  While the cause of the Fire which appears to be accidental is still under investigation, the Fire Marshall urges all those with horse or livestock barns to review their own buildings and follow recommendations published by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA).
