Tariffville Station

Tariffville Station

 

The Tariffville Station is located at 7 Church Street in the Village of Tariffville which is located in the northeast section of Simsbury. The original section of this structure was built in 1860 and used for storage by the Ketchin Tobacco Company. The Tariffville Fire Company acquired the building in 1941, and the Simsbury Fire District took possession of it in 1983 when the Tariffville Fire Company elected to merge with Simsbury.

Extensive renovations were made to the building in 1992 to bring it up to the current standards of the day. The station features two apparatus bays, a training classroom, day room, Captain's office, fully-equipped kitchen, shower facilities and emergency stand-by generator. Tariffville Station is also home to the Fire Company photography archive.

Weatogue Station

Weatogue Station

 

The Weatogue Station is located in the southeast section of town at 251 Hopmeadow Street. The station features two drive-through apparatus bays, a training classroom, day room, Captain's office, fully-equipped kitchen, shower facilities and emergency stand-by generator. This station, which opened in 1996, replaced the original structure that was built on this site in 1962.

To the rear of Weatogue Station is the Fire Company's drill grounds consisting of the burn building and storage annex. Built in 1988, the burn building is specially designed and constructed for live fire training, but the building and grounds are utilized for a vast array of training scenarios.

Drill Tower

Also conveniently located at Weatogue Station partially because of the drill ground's proximity, are the Chief of Training's office, our certified air-fill station for the filling of self-contained breathing apparatus bottles, and our SCBA maintenance and repair shop.

Main Station

Main Station

 

Centrally located in Simsbury's business district, the Main Station at 871 Hopmeadow Street was the first Simsbury station to be built to Fire Company specifications. The original station was constructed between 1948 and 1949. It underwent several renovations prior to its eventual replacement in 2010.

The New Main Station was built to incorporate the current and future needs of the Simsbury Fire District and Company. The upgrades include safer drive through apparatus bay, new Frank Bradley monument, up-to-date commercial style kitchen for the Ladies Auxiliary, as well as updates to The Dispatch office.

Located behind the Main Station is the Fire District's Apparatus Maintenance Facility which was built in 1984. The fully-equipped garage includes a floor jack capable of lifting 75,000 pounds which will handle our largest apparatus, and a 2 ton overhead electric crane for removing pumps, generators and engines.
