Forest Fire Danger Level

Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Daily Forest Fire Danger Report.


Mission Statement

The mission of the Sandy Hook Vol. Fire & Rescue Co., Inc. is to strive for excellence in the performance of prevention of loss of life, personal injury and damage from fire, medical and other emergencies of any or all persons when called upon. We shall do this by maintaining a high standard of training and public education and act and perform in a safe, courteous and professional manner.


Move Right For Blue Light

Volunteer firefighters display a flashing blue light to warn other motorists when they are responding to emergencies in their personal vehicles.

While Connecticut Motor Vehicle laws do not require motorists to pull over to the right, please be courteous and let them pass.

Remember: The faster we can get to the scene of a fire, an accident or a medical call, the sooner we can save lives. After all, you wouldn't want anyone to delay our response time if you needed to call 911, would you?

When you see the blue light, move to the right.

The Fireman's Prayer

A Fireman's Prayer
 
When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage,
Give me strength to save some life
Whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor and
Protect his property.
And if according to my fate
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife.

Silverado Heavily Damaged Following Crash Into Tree
Mon. Oct 15th 2012

Sandy Hook and Newtown Ambulance were dispatched to the area of 20 Jeremiah Road a 1300 hours following a reported one-vehicle rollover.

Chief Halstead was on scene within five minutes, and reported a pick-up truck had rolled over but that the driver of the vehicle had self-extricated. 441 with a crew of two responded to the scene, as did additional firefighters and fire police in their POVs.

A 46-year old male had been traveling westbound on Jeremiah in a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado when, shortly after passing Fawnwood Road, he lost control of the vehicle and went off the roadway, striking a number of small boulders along the roadway and then hitting a tree in the front yard of 22 Jeremiah. The driver had, as Chief Halstead reported, been able to get out of the vehicle on his own, but he had lacerations to his face and arms.

NVAC members checked the driver, but he refused transport to the hospital.

Firefighters waited on the scene until the truck was towed, and returned to service at 13:51.

 






Engineer George Lockwood Jr checking the engine once the hood was able to be opened. Firefighters had a difficult time opening the hood due to damage done to the interior of the cab, and the area around the hood release.
