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!

OUR ANNUAL TRADITION CONTINUES DESPITE COVID-19

15135827 10209983059392007 7513796560807799360 n  15179010 10209983059912020 2006499216087107912 n

The members of the Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company want to be sure that our Simsbury Residents get some old fashion holiday cheer at a time when traditional gatherings are being canceled and discouraged.

In place of our usual parade down Hopmeadow Street, the volunteers are putting the decorated trucks on display for all to see in a drive through event down Iron Horse Boulevard so everyone can stay distant, safe and enjoy the spirit of the holidays in full color!

Starting at 5pm our trucks will be all decorated and lined up on Iron Horse Boulevard for this FREE event.  Cars will enter Iron Horse at Rte 10 across from Owens Brook Blvd and enjoy the "parade" of lighted trucks as you drive south ending at Drake Hill Road. (Iron Horse Boulevard will be closed northbound from Drake Hill Rd to Hopmeadow Street while the trucks are on display.)

Due to Covid restrictions there will not be any candy give-a-ways or opportunity to stop and visit any of the displays.  PLEASE NOTE: For Safety Purposes, The Pedestrian Side Walk Will Be Closed from 5PM to 7PM while the display event is being held.

A special message for the children!....
 
We have been told from from a verified source that Jolly Ol' Saint Nicholas will be greeting the families safely in their cars from his sleigh atop ladder 11.
