Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Co. Inc. proudly protects 15000 people living in an area of 25 square miles. We operate out of 2 stations that protect a primarily residential area. Our department is a public department whose members are on a volunteer status.
We are a completely volunteer fire department. We are a district in the Town of Newtown. Although we respond with other companies in town, our main area is Sandy Hook, CT. Some of our equipment is purchased by the town which is overseen by the Newtown Board of Fire Commissioners. We respond to fire calls, haz-mat calls, extrications, and first responders for Newtown Ambulance Corps. We hold many fund raisers through out the year and attend many parades through out the state.
