Notice from President Gary Wilcox

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!
