SVFC 75th1944 - SIMSBURY WITHOUT FIRE PROTECTION! 75th logo

 

That may have been the headline 75 years ago if not for a group of Simsbury residents who stepped up to form and organize the Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company when Ensign Bickford informed the town that it could no longer provide fire response service to the town due to the impact of World War II.

Working in partnership with the Simsbury Fire District (who is also celebrating 75 years of service) the Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company, starting with 1 engine and a hand full of volunteer residents, has seen significant growth and modernization as it continues to provide the highest level of fully trained fire and rescue services. The SVFC continues to reply on Simsbury residents to volunteer to be trained and state certified as firefighters.

This year we begin our celebration of 75 years of volunteer fire service to the Town of Simsbury.  There are many events being planned over the next 12 months beginning with the Rotary's Simsbury River Run Road Race - Sunday April 28th on Iron Horse Blvd -  which is being run highlighting our 75th Anniversary. There is a special sign up for Firefighters who would like to run in the race with special recognition and gifts.  We will have Firetrucks and Firefighters at the Start and Finish Lines as well as members throughout the event.  Come help us celebrate this kick off event for our 75th Anniversary!
