Message from Chief   


Welcome to the official web page of the Cromwell Fire Department.  We invite you to look through this site and get to know what makes the Cromwell Fire Department so special.

The Cromwell Fire Department is one of the most unique fire departments in the State of Connecticut. Originally established in 1928, the Department was founded, like many similar fire departments, with the community-spirited concept of neighbors helping neighbors.  Over the years the essence of community has become woven into the fabric of the Department and further defines our organization.

Today the department operates as a combination fire and life safety protection delivery system, which means its membership is comprised of volunteer, part-time, and career personnel.  These dedicated professionally-minded first responders work side by side, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide a wide variety of services to protect the Cromwell community and mutually assist its neighboring fire departments.  Every day the Town of Cromwell is protected by 6 firefighter/EMTs that are on duty 24-hours a day, dedicating their lives to the citizens that live, work, and visit this great community.

As an integral part of the Cromwell Fire District, the Fire Department is responsible for the delivery of fire protection, technical rescues mitigation, hazardous material emergency response, and emergency medical services through the Fire Marshal's Office, the Emergency Medical Division, the Fire Operations Division and the Communications Office.

The Cromwell Fire Department is very proactive within the community.  We assist with community fundraisers, annual fire prevention education, car seat installations, community outreach and work with the Town of Cromwell Health Department on the installation program of smoke & carbon monoxide detectors.  Our dedication is to give back to this great community for all the support they have given us throughout the years.

As you further peruse this site, I hope you will become inspired and will continue to have your interest piqued to explore becoming a member of this organization in whatever capacity you feel comfortable.  I sincerely hope your interest in us which originally caused you to examine us closer remains enticed, and the reason for your visit has successfully been fulfilled.

If you have any questions, concerns, or need assistance in any way, please feel free to contact me anytime.

"Smoke Detectors Save Lives."  Please ensure that your smoke detectors are operational at all times.  If you need assistance in ensuring proper smoke detector protection, please do not hesitate to contact us.
