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.

CHARITABLE FUND SET UP TO ASSIST SIMSBURY FIREFIGHTERS INVOLVED IN CRASH

On October 2, 2019 two Simsbury Volunteer Firefighters were passengers aboard the vintage B17 that crashed at Bradley Airport.  While we are thankful that our members are among the survivors of this terrible tragedy, our hearts go out to all of the families of those that did not make it.  Firefighter Jim Traficante is currently recovering at home and Firefighter JT Huber is being treated at the Bridgeport Burn Center and will have a more extensive recovery ahead of him.  Over the last few weeks, there has been an outpouring of support and requests to help.  At this time, the Simsbury Firefighters Charitable Fund has been established to help with expenses that the two Simsbury Firefighters and their families may incur while recovering from their injuries.
