Message from fire District President

Wilcox Gary President

In these unprecedented times all of us at the Simsbury Fire District and Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company have had to adjust to the new normal in every facet of everyday life. All involved on every level of our fire service have done an outstanding job in meeting every demand and challenge we have recently faced and will continue to face. The Fire District and Fire Company is well staffed and  ready to respond to protect and serve the residents of the Town of Simsbury. The health and safety of our volunteer first responders and our district employees is our highest priority. In addition, our ongoing commitment to response readiness through emergency training and emergency planning continues using new technology and distance communication methods. It is this training and planning that gives us the ability to perform the tasks we face each and every day, We are very proud of the men and women that serve in their capacities throughout our organization. Thank you each and every one of you for all you do!

Become a volunteer

We are your neighbors — nurses, students, business owners, trade and craftsmen, lawyers, bankers, corporate executives, town employees, stay-at-home moms and dads, grandmothers, grandfathers, and more.  Our oldest member served continuously for 62 years; our youngest member is a high school senior who hopes to attend the US Military Academy at West Point next year. Our volunteers have received local, regional and national recognition for their dedication and results.

We currently have 100 active members, 24 of whom are certified Emergency Medical Technicians.  Some members are exclusively firefighters, other members choose to certify in both capacities.  We are always looking for new volunteers!  If you’re interested in a little hard work, a strong sense of community, the benefits and excitement of learning new skills and have a desire to help neighbors in a time of need, consider joining us.  Stop by the firehouse on a Monday evening to learn how you can be part of something special in Simsbury. You’ll be warmly welcomed.
